    V992 – Residing (Repeal) Bill 2016, TSR Labour Party

    Residing (Repeal) Bill 2016

    An Act to repeal the Residing Act 2015.

    BE IT ENACTED by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

    1: Repeal
    Residing Act 2015 (V847) is repealed.

    2: Commencement, short title and extent
    (1) This Act extends to England and Wales.
    (2) The provisions of this Act come into force immediately.
    (3) This Act may be cited as the Residing (Repeal) Act 2016.

    V847 drastically reduces the options available to those who are unfortunate enough to find themselves without a home - while it permits people to stay on private land with permission, that is almost never going to be the case. Furthermore, if a person has sufficiently little control over their own property that they don't realise a homeless person is using it for shelter, it seems only reasonable that said person be permitted to reside until they realise.

    This seeks to repeal this barbaric legislation, which is wholly inappropriate while public provisions for the unfortunate are still insufficient.

    Aye. A sensible repeal of an abhorrent Bill which targets the weakest in society for no gain.
