STUART SMITH: It is a great pleasure to speak on this bill, and given that its merits are so blindingly obvious, there is nothing more that I need to say other than that I commend it to the House. Thank you.

STUART SMITH: Well, I think at the heart of this debate about this bill is actually a Government that is putting people at the centre of social housing rather than putting a housing provider at the centre of the bill. It is about people. That is what this whole Budget is about. I would like, with great pleasure, to commend the bill to the House. Thank you.
