Commonhold (Hansard, 3 December 1990)
HC Deb 03 December 1990 vol 182 c15
33. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Attorney-General when he expects to bring forward legislation on the proposals of the working group on commonhold.

The Solicitor-General

The Government published "Commonhold—a Consultation Paper" on Wednesday 28 November. The Command Paper includes a draft Bill and in part IV a series of questions on which the Government are seeking views.

Mr. Bowis

Does my right hon. and learned Friend agree that the question relates to a group of leaseholders that has been especially disadvantaged in recent years? Will he hurry forward his consultation and, I hope, his implementation of the recommendations of the working party?

The Solicitor-General

I know of the close interest that my hon. Friend has taken in that matter over many years, along with other of my hon. Friends. If he can make constructive suggestions to deal with one or two rather knotty issues that are raised in the consultation paper, I am sure that that will help hurry the matter forward.
