HC Deb 21 July 1998 vol 316 c447W
38. Mrs. Lait

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department how many representations he has received on the introduction of commonhold tenure of property; and if he will make a statement. [49911]

Mr. Hoon

Since 1 May 1997, I have received seven letters from Members of this House making representations about commonhold, and there have been three Parliamentary Questions, including the present one. Over the same period, it is estimated that my Department has received, on average, about one letter and three telephone inquiries on the subject of commonhold per week, although a number of these were repeat inquiries from the same people. Those making inquiries included individuals living in leasehold accommodation, residents associations, representatives of mortgage lenders, and others.
