Should the Land Registry be Privatised?
Land Registry Privatisation
Despite the overwhelming opposition to the proposed plans put forward at the beginning of the year which led to Vince Cable scrapping the plans , George Osborne wrote in the Autumn Statement of his plans to consult on options to move operations of the Land Registry to the private sector from 2017.
I feel very strongly that the Land Registry should remain in the public sector, and am pleased that my firm is working with the other stakeholders to do something about it. https://apbassettsolicitors.wordpress.com/2015/11/30/why-we-are-saying-no-to-the-privatisation-of-the-land-registry/
