HL Deb 07 April 1998 vol 588 c121WA
Lord Williams of Elvel

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What proposals they have to legislate for the proper management of common land in England and Wales. [HL1370]

Baroness Hayman

We intend to look at proposals for common land legislation in the light of the findings of a research project on good practice on managing common land, which is due to be published shortly. This may lead to consultation with interested parties and then to consideration of whether and when further legislation might be introduced.
