§ 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).
