This chapter focuses on the role of the House of Lords in relation to land law. It argues that the House has always responded energetically and purposefully to new legislation. Analysing the policy underlying an Act of Parliament, carrying it into effect, and setting appropriate boundaries have been its main areas of activity. The large areas of law and practice which lie outside social or economic policy have benefited at most from sporadic raids. The answers to many practical problems in those areas still lie in the decisions of the lower courts, and the textbooks.
