asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he intends to introduce legislation to enable mistaken registrations of land under the Commons Registration Act 1965 to be corrected.

This matter will be looked at carefully when we come to formulate comprehensive legislation to deal with the outstanding recommendations of the 1958 Royal Commision on common land and related issues. But this is a complex subject and the work involved in preparing legislation would make heavy demands on staff resources which are not currently available. Accordingly, we do not propose any legislation on commons before mid-1982 at the earliest.
