Ceist:

113 Mr. Haughey asked the Minister for Justice if her attention has been drawn to the fact that the Land Registry will grant possessory title to a squatter on a freehold property but will not grant possessory title to a squatter in a leasehold property as a result of the decision in Perry v Woodfarm; and if she will introduce reforming legislation to deal with this anomaly in order to regularise the situation for many squatters in this State.

As I have already indicated in this House, I could not undertake to indicate, by way of reply to Parliamentary Questions, what specific legislative proposals I might have in a particular area. Any proposals which may emerge in relation to the subject matter of the question would fall to be announced in the usual way in due course.
