This article states everybody has a stake in land 'regardless of ownership' and supports the campaign against the privatisation of the land registry. Highlights some interesting facts and names allies. http://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/may/31/who-owns-land-housing-crisis-land-registry-secret-ownership-of-land

Author (‘Who owns Scotland?’, 'The Poor had no Lawyers') and MSP Andy Whitman calls for another more radical Land Reform Bill (Scotland) - a modernisation of the 1919 Land Settlement Act. Information comes from a new Scottish campaign website 'common space' https://www.commonspace.scot/articles/8494/exclusive-andywightman-calls-new-land-reform-bill-parliament

Also in Scotland, but on the other side, Tories call for cuts to the new Land and Buildings Transaction Tax for properties over £500,000. http://www.scottishlegal.com/2016/05/31/tories-warn-of-land-and-building-tax-impact-on-top-end-of-market/
