Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I join other members in thanking the clerks and the witnesses who came to the committee and helped us to bring the bill to the chamber. Usually on such occasions, we say how delighted we are to be passing the legislation. I am pleased with the bill, and we will—unlike Mr McLetchie and his Conservatives—support it tonight. However, I have a nagging feeling that we could have done more....

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: As Johann Lamont said, community housing associations have been the backbone of housing throughout Scotland and we should continue to support them. I am always happy to take part in debates that improve housing in Scotland, but I say to the minister that I still have a feeling that we could have done more. I believe that we will need to return to the issues after the next elections.

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 143B — Duty to assess and provide housing support needs of persons who are homeless or threatened with homelessness (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: There has been much misinformation about the amendment that I lodged at stage 2 on an assessment of homeless people to see what support services they might need. Let me be clear: my intention was to ensure that when homeless people are allocated a home, they are given the support services that are necessary to ensure that they are able to maintain that home. Those support services would be...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 142C — Scottish secure tenancy: rent arrears pre-action requirements (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I understand why Margo MacDonald lodged amendments 11, 12 and 13. They could be seen as the next step along the path that the bill is travelling on, which is to give tenants protection against eviction. However, that step is unnecessary. In its briefing to members, the Chartered Institute of Housing in Scotland made the point that, at some stage, a landlord has to come to a view on whether to...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 142C — Scottish secure tenancy: rent arrears pre-action requirements (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I accept what Margo MacDonald says, but discussion between the landlord and the tenant is needed, and they need to try to arrive at a solution to the problem. However, at some stage, the landlord will have to decide whether the matter is resolvable and might therefore seek to take it to the court, which will then take a view on it. Section 142C is similar to the provision on pre-action...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 132 — Introductory (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: The amendments in the name of the minister are the most disappointing part of today's deliberations. It is difficult to understand how a Government, with all its resources, can introduce a bill and then, at stage 3, try to remove some of its most important sections. For people such as those to whom Pauline McNeill has just referred, who live in the private rented sector or in HMOs, the...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: After section 131 (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: I support amendments 7, 8 and 9. At stage 2, I moved an amendment that would have required a report to be compiled three years after the bill was enacted, to show the overall impact of right-to-buy legislation, including the bill. It is unfortunate that my amendment was not agreed to. The amendments in David McLetchie's name would provide for the publication of some of the information that...

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: After section 131 (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: Can Mr McLetchie clarify whether the money for stock transfer is no longer available under the Conservative Government?

Scottish Parliament: Housing (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: After section 131 (3 Nov 2010)

Mary Mulligan: Members have heard from the SFHA and individual housing associations on the 10-year exemption from the right to buy. Again, I believe that the bill seeks a balance between not removing individual tenants' rights and maintaining stock in the affordable rented sector to meet demand. It is not as if housing association tenants will suddenly have the right to buy—the exemption will have been in...
