Homelessness Reduction Bill set for Lords approval 16/03/2017

The Homelessness Reduction Bill, having been approved by the House of Commons, passed its Second Reading in the House of Lords on 24 February.


No amendments having been tabled by 10 March, Lord Best, the Bill's sponsor in the House of Lords, moved an Order of Committal proposing that the Bill move directly to third reading which was agreed. A date is to be confirmed. 


It is now likely that the Bill, as approved by the Commons, will be endorsed by the Lords and move to Royal Assent before Easter. The main provisions are unlikely to commence, however, before there has been consultation on a new Homelessness Code of Guidance. The Code of Practice proposed in the Bill will require further Parliamentary approval before it can come into force.
