Clause 11 — Housing costs
Bill Presented — European Convention on Human Rights (Temporary Withdrawal) Bill
Alan Reid (Argyll and Bute, Liberal Democrat)
I am pleased to hear my right hon. Friend say that there will be discretionary housing payments to take into account particular circumstances. I draw his attention to the particular circumstances of islands and very remote communities where, because of the nature of the housing
stock, there may be no alternative for people to move to. When funds are allocated to local authorities, will the position of islands and remote communities be taken into account?
