HC Deb 12 May 1992 vol 207 cc60-1W
Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to publish legislation arising out of the consultation paper dealing with the law on squatting; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jack

The Government are committed to improving remedies against squatting. A consultation paper setting out various options was published last October, requesting comments by 31 March. A wide variety of individuals and organisations responded.

These comments will be valuable in guiding work by ourselves and other Government Departments in determining how best to improve law in this area.
