HC Deb 28 February 1990 vol 168 c253W
41. Mrs. Ray Michie

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps his Department has taken to promote the equitable ownership and use of land in Scotland.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

It is not the Government's policy to intervene on matters of land ownership. The function of the land use planning system is to regulate the use of land in the interests of economy, efficiency and amenity.
