§ Lord Coleraine
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they are satisfied with the working of the Prescription Act 1832; and whether they will introduce legislation to repeal the Act and to abolish, in respect of both easements and profits à prendre, prescription at common law and under the doctrine of lost modern grant, as recommended in 1966 by the Law Reform Committee.63WA
§ The Lord Chancellor (Lord Mackay of Clashfern)
There are no plans to abolish the right to acquire easements or profits by prescription.
