§ 64. Mr. Fraser
To ask the Attorney-General what studies the Lord Chancellor is currently undertaking into the law relating to landlord and tenant, in the light of recent reports from the Law Commission.
§ The Solicitor-General (Sir Nicholas Lyell)
The Government have under current consideration three recent reports of the Law Commission relating to different aspects of landlord and tenant law.
§ Mr. Fraser
During his canvassing in north Kensington, has the Solicitor-General been struck by the unanswerable case for leasehold reform for flats? Since the report of the Law Commission into strata title makes it immensely easier to have a framework for enfranchisement, will the Government announce that they are now as in favour in principle of leasehold enfranchisement for flats as for houses?
§ The Solicitor-General
As the hon. Gentleman knows, that is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment. The Law Commission's most recent report is an agenda for consultation.
