The Speaker has selected the following Amendments for debate:

Amendment 1

Proposed: Leave out all after ‘homeless’ and insert:

‘and that some social housing falls below an expected quality and that this exacerbates the housing crisis; further notes the Programme for Government 11-15 commitment to deliver 8,000 social and affordable homes will not match the current level of need; believes that the segregation of housing contributes to an inflexible supply of housing and therefore to the housing crisis; calls on the Minister for Social Development to begin to tackle the housing crisis by committing to deliver an additional 4,000 social and affordable homes by the end of the current Programme for Government period; and further calls for the introduction of  legislation to facilitate shared housing and the role it can play in tackling the housing crisis.’

Amendment 2

Proposed: Leave out all after the first ‘homes’ and insert:

‘which was deemed by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive to meet identified need; and calls on the Minister for Social Development to continue working with the Housing Association movement to increase its capacity to provide an additional 1000 social and affordable homes over the Programme for Government period whilst also providing additional services to tenants.’
