This amendment adds a clause enabling the Secretary of State to make regulations providing for the roll-out of loans in place of the current help offered to owner-occupiers. The new clause ensures that the Government can manage the introduction of loans for mortgage interest and other payments as it sees fit and, in particular, the migration of persons who currently receive assistance in the form of a benefit to receiving assistance by way of a loan.
