Chris Challenges Govt To Support Mobile Homes Act 1983 (Amendment)
To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, pursuant to the Answer of 4 November 2021 to Question 64598, for what reason it is the Government's policy to object to the Mobile Homes Act 1983 (Amendment) Bill receiving a second reading; and if he will make a statement.
Eddie Hughes Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities)
The Government was unable to support the Mobile Homes Act 1983 (Amendment) Bill printed in June 2020, because the proposal for maintenance costs not to be included in pitch fees at the next review would have had a negative impact on residents.
The Bill printed on 24 January 2022 set out a new proposal to change the pitch fee review inflationary index from the Retail Price Index to the Consumer Price Index. We will consider the proposal in detail and make a statement at the Bill's Second Reading.
