New Clause 21 - Rent standards

Welfare Reform and Work Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 3:45 pm on 15 October 2015.

Alert me about debates like this

“Sections 194(2A) and 198(3) of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008 (the powers of the regulator to set and revise standards relating to levels of rent) are subject to sections 19 to 21 and (Provision about excepted cases) and Schedule (Further provision about social housing rents).”—(Guy Opperman.)

This amendment expands the provision in clause 19(9) of the Bill as introduced. It makes the rent standards issued by the Regulator of Social Housing subject to the provisions in the Bill about rent levels.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
