Housing and Planning Bill latest 07/01/2016

Members of Parliament began to debate the Report Stage of the Housing and Planning Bill in the House of Commons on Tuesday 5 January 2016. The debate was adjourned at midnight. MPs did not reach Part 4 of the Bill dealing with the provisions regarding social housing (sale of high value stock, introduction of mandatory 'pay to stay' and phasing out of secure lifetime tenancies).


Day two of the Report Stage, the Legislative Grand Committee and Third Reading of the Bill have been scheduled for Tuesday 12 January 2016.


A number of detailed amendments to Part 4 have been put down by opposition members on day one, some of which reflect our stance as set out in our submission to the Public Bill Committee. However it remains to be seen whether such amendments will be carried out.


We have made representations on Part 4 when the Bill was considered by the Public Bill Committee prior to Christmas and we've issued a further short briefing for Parliamentarians in advance of the first day debate on the Report Stage and Third Reading.
