Reply To: Supported Accommodation government review – when?


Latest on the Bill

It’s gone through Report Stage and Third Reading in the House of Commons

An interesting amendment thrown up

“At present, the Bill stipulates that the conditions that may be attached to a licence include conditions relating to the standard of accommodation; conditions relating to the use of accommodation; conditions relating to the provision of care, support or supervision; and conditions requiring compliance with national supported housing standards, when we eventually publish them. Amendment 2 will add to that:

“conditions requiring the carrying out of assessments of the needs of residents… and relating to the conduct of such assessments”.

Looks to me that this is going to be a tight Bill.

Latest is that it is now in the House of Lords and has received its first reading,

Second reading is to come. Lord Best is ferrying this through the Lords so contact him for comments.
