Housing (Overcrowding) Bill
29. The Housing (Overcrowding) Bill,
introduced by Mr Andrew Love MP, published with Explanatory Notes
prepared by Mr Love, would amend the Housing Act 1985, redefining
overcrowding to set a new standard for the number and size of
bedrooms and for the space available in accommodation as a whole.
The Bill would help to ensure that the law in England and Wales
would more fully protect the right to adequate housing under ICESC
Bills which engage human rights
30. The Bills noted in paragraphs 31 to 45, below,
engage human rights, but do not appear to us to give rise to serious
difficulties of justification such that they require to be drawn
to the attention of either House at this time.
