Affordable Housing Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed)
I move amendment No. 30:
In page 10, between lines 19 and 20, to insert the following: “(1) The purchase of such open market dwellings may constitute no more than 10 per cent of the affordable housing purchase supported by a housing authority in any given year.”
I note that the 10% target I have set here may be a matter of concern. I will reserve the right to reintroduce the amendment with a different percentage. I will press the amendment as it stands. I may come back with a different percentage that is agreeable to everybody on Report Stage.
