LabourList article on Land Registry privatisation

Today I have written an article for Labour List calling on the new government to halt plans to sell off the Land Registry to a private buyer: Privatisation of the Land Registry would be the triumph of right-wing ideology over economic sense.

During a debate on the future of the Land Registry that I called back in June it was clear that the Government will not have the votes it needs to push through their proposed privatisation, such was the strength of opposition from Tory backbenchers.

It is time for the Government to confirm the U-turn that the then junior minister George Freeman hinted at from the front bench and announce that it will not be going ahead with this misguided and damaging privatisation.
