HC Deb 29 January 1990 vol 166 c68W
Mr. David Porter

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement about the working of the Commons Registration Act 1965; and when he expects to bring forward proposals to amend it.

Mr. Trippier

We recognise, as did the Common Land Forum, that there are deficiencies in the Commons Registration Act 1965. For our legislative intentions, I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on 27 November 1989 to my hon. Friend the Member for Harborough (Sir J. Farr),(Official Report, Vol. 162, column 89).
