§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what proportion of land acreage in England and Wales is currently owned by trusts located outside the United Kingdom.
Mr. John M. Taylor
The Land Registry does not maintain statistics relating to registered land acreage or to the purpose or nature of business of registered proprietors. To obtain the information requested would involve an inspection of each specific registration and this could be done only at disproportionate cost.
