Housing Bill — Decent Homes Standard for Social Housing — 8 Nov 2004 at 21:30

Mr Jeremy Corbyn MP, Islington North voted in the minority (No).

I beg to move, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment.

Yes, it is me again. The new clause proposed by the amendment would require the Secretary of State to ensure that, by 2016, all existing social housing stock should, as far as is reasonably practicable, achieve a SAP rating-an energy rating under the standard assessment procedure-of no lower than 65, which would amount to a change in the decent homes standard. I refer to that point because material circulated among Members recognises that the decent homes standard is the Government's vehicle for the delivery of heating and thermal comfort.

Question put, That this House disagrees with the Lords in the said amendment:-

The House divided: Ayes 265, Noes 156.
