CIMLA councillor John Warman has had his say on the proposed privatisation of the Land Registry.

Mr Warman has claimed that the move could have devastating implications for the local authority, and home owners in Neath Port Talbot.

He added: "The Land Registry have an office in Llansamlet Swansea and a number of staff who work there and live in the county could lose their jobs.

"The local Land Registry employ 430 staff and research recently has indicated that overall satisfaction with the current provider is very high. There is no public appetite for change."

Now, Mr Warman is urging those looking to buy homes in Neath Port Talbot to protest to the UK Government about the changes.

"I will be seeking Neath Port Talbot Council to strongly protest," he added.

A consultation is ongoing.

    Mr Warman seems to be wrong again, the land registry has changed for the worse, one time you could go there to seek information now you have to make an appointment, retrograde step. Privatisation is probably a good move as it will ensure efficiency and service to the public and take away the public liability to pay civil servants exorbitant pensions and salaries. Is Warman trying to raise his profile as he seems to be the one councillor in N+PT that is in the post most frequently
