HC Deb 18 December 1995 vol 268 c880W
33. Mr. Barnes

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will introduce measures requiring the Land Registry not to record cross-deeds in its records; and if he will make a statement. [4669]

Mr. Jonathan Evans

A joint working party of the Law Commission, Her Majesty's Land Registry and the Lord Chancellor's Department is currently considering possible reform of the Land Registration Act 1925 and will look in particular at the treatment of easements and overriding interests in the land registration system—this will encompass the situation to which the hon. Gentleman refers. The joint working party hopes to report by the summer of next year.
