Chris Seeks 2nd Reading Of The Mobile Homes 1983 (Amendment) Act
Christopher Chope Conservative, Christchurch 1:59 pm, 28th October 2022
I am not going to move the Second Reading.
Nigel Evans Deputy Speaker (Second Deputy Chairman of Ways and Means)
It is not moved.
Christopher Chope Conservative, Christchurch 2:14 pm, 28th October 2022
I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.
I will begin by briefly explaining why I did not move the Mobile Homes Act 1983 (Amendment) Bill. The Government have agreed that the Mobile Homes (Pitch Fees) Bill, which will have its Second Reading on Friday 18 November, will have their support. That Bill specifies a change from using the retail prices index to the consumer prices index as a basis for the maximum annual increase in pitch fees, which would change the maximum from 12.5% to 10.1%. On the basis of that good news, I thought it would be better to raise a separate subject.
Ben Spencer Conservative, Runnymede and Weybridge
I thank my hon. Friend for his assiduous work to campaign for that change. I put on the record my great pleasure that the Government will support the Bill in November, because it will make such a difference to all our park home residents.
Christopher Chope Conservative, Christchurch
I am grateful to my hon. Friend. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating. We cannot count our chickens yet, but let us hope that everything goes smoothly in November.
