§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what information he has concerning the current average cost of feu redemption; and whether he has any plans to abolish such a charge;
(2) if he has any plans to review the law on feu redemption.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
Information about costs of feu duty redemption is not held centrally. Before considering whether any legislation on this question is desirable, my right hon. Friend proposes to await the recommendations of the Scottish Law Commission on completion of its current major review of property law in Scotland.
