No movement on chancel repair liability

A private members’ bill was been introduced into parliament last year – The Chancel Repairs Bill 2014 (HL Bill No.38) to attempt an abolition of chancel repair liability. Introduced into the House of Lords, its first reading took place on 16 July. It is described as a Bill to make provision for ending the liability of lay rectors for the repair of chancels. It applies only to England only. Its provisions are brief.
