. The official line from the Cabinet Office announcement was: "HM Land Registry: Retain and substantially reform – Retain on the grounds of transparency – but Government will undertake a feasibility study to scope out the opportunities presented by private sector investment." The Land Registry announcement says that: "A number of options will be considered, ranging from greater private sector involvement in our commercial activities to full or partial privatisation of Land Registry."
