John Kelly (Labour)
I appreciate the Minister's efforts on 14 March to make things a little easier for people. In fairness, I would not have thought many of the people who find themselves in this position would know this facility was available to them and I would be glad to announce it. I would like the Minister, however, to consider an amendment to the legislation in the longer term. The property being habitable is the core of the issue. It might be habitable if an investment was made. In the case of the small shop, where the accommodation cannot be accessed unless a person goes through the shop, it could be considered habitable.
