New Clause 40 - Powers of accompanying persons

Renters (Reform) Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 3:00 pm on 28 November 2023.

Alert me about debates like this

“A person who accompanies an officer of a local housing authority entering premises under, or under a warrant under, this Chapter—

(a) has the same powers under this Chapter as the officer in relation to the premises, but

(b) must exercise those powers only in the company, and under the supervision, of the officer.”—

This new clause provides for the powers of persons who accompany officers of local housing authorities onto premises under other new clauses which authorise the entry of such persons onto premises.

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