“(2A)    

In the case of a proposal for an agreement under subsection (1) between the

 

Secretary of State and a local housing authority which is within Greater London

 

as defined by section 2 of the London Government Act 1963 the Secretary of

 

State shall—

 

(a)    

have particular regard to the extent to which the agreement will

 

contribute to the target set under section [New Clause 1; Target for new

 

affordable housing provision in Greater London], and

 

(b)    

consult the Mayor of London,”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment and New Clause 1 would require the Secretary of State and housing authorities

 

in London entering an agreement which would reduce the amount due to be paid under section 62

 

to have regard to the duty to achieve the provision of at least two new units of affordable housing

 

for the disposal of each unit of high value in London.

disposal of each unit of high value housing in Greater London as defined under

housing authorities to achieve the provision of at least two new units of affordable housing for the
