I plead with the Joint Parliamentary Secretary to take into account the circumstances of these people who are in as bad a position as any tenant could possibly be. Surely to state that is to state objections which make it impossible to accept an Amendment of this kind.
He knew full well that some time within the next two years he would get a local authority house, but in the meantime he had to have somewhere to live. He was perfectly content to take a house which I had available for a definite period of two years. The landlord knows that at the end of two years the house is there for him if the time has come for him to occupy the house. Due to the dependence privilege and the cheap cost required to sign up with the sober living homes, people mostly wish to spend more time there than at the treatment centre. Once the treatment centre is properly suited and sophisticated, it becomes easier for the patient to stay calm especially for patients who are yet to regain their wellness. An integral part of the recovery residence is community living and acceptance of responsibility for oneself in day-to-day living with other individuals. Residents must attend the group counseling and group skills training, participate in a recovery support community (eg 12-step meetings) and work to build a recovery network.
This means that the person remains ordinarily resident in the Local Authority in which they lived prior to admission. This also includes hospitals and NHS accommodation in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The house having sentimental connections, he and his wife did not want to give it up, so as he would not be requiring it himself for two, three or five years, he could either leave it unoccupied or let it on a short-term basis. Should he leave it unoccupied, rotting away, or should he—as he could with the greatest of ease—let it to a tenant who was prepared to accept it on a short-term basis?
In each circumstance the Local Authority which has been paying for that person’s care may reclaim the costs from the Local Authority where the person is ordinarily resident. If a person has Care and Support needs in addition to the mental health needs being met through section 117 Aftercare then these needs also remain the responsibility of the Local Authority in which the person was living before they were sectioned. However, if the person has capacity and chooses to become ordinarily resident in the other Local Authority area after discharge from hospital then the responsibility to meet their Care and Support needs would fall to the new Local Authority . Where a person is admitted into hospital some distance from the Local Authority in which they are ordinary resident it may be difficult practically for the Authority to visit the person in order to complete an assessment.

Long Term Sober Facilities
This is the safest and surest way of eliminating the risk of relapse. Sober living homes accommodate residents up to 3 months or more depending on the need.
There seems no possiblity of any abuse because the owner must satisfy the court that he requires the house for his own recovery residence occupation. This is not a case of someone buying an enormous block of flats and deciding to live in each flat in turn.
Today, he said, “I suppose that the Government are right and we had better not try to do anything”. Members opposite can find a word to cover the short point which they have in mind, that is an entirely different matter, but a wide recovery residence Clause of this nature would mean further decontrol over and above the creeping decontrol which came in with the 1957 Act. In these circumstances, I advise the House to vote against the insertion of this proposal in the Bill.
This possibly is a case which would not come within the scope of the 1933 Act. Member for Leicester, North-West (Sir B. Janner), for whose activity in these matters I have great respect, there seems little possiblity of any subterfuge or injustice in this matter. A man acquires a house with vacant possession and lets it to a tenant on the distinct understanding that the let is temporary. He is simply deferring the vacant possession, which he has deliberately acquired, until a certain event takes place.
Gemma and Dale are both in their thirties now but life has been a real rollercoaster for them. Since being introduced to crack cocaine by an ex-boyfriend at the age of 17, Gemma has struggled with addiction her whole adult life. Dale was a corporate high flier who travelled the world, owned a speedboat and drove a fancy car. But in 2014, the tragic death of his partner added to a barely controllable cocaine addiction. From there, an addiction to sleeping tablets served as a gateway to heroin. Work for Us Join our dedicated and highly motivated staff who are committed to empowering others and making a difference.

Then there are certain conditions similar to those in the Government’s Clause 14, including the provision that not later than the commencement of the tenancy he must have given notice in writing that he might want to recover the house under this new Clause. This Clause got into the Bill during the Report stage in another place where it had also been under consideration in Committee. The principle was also discussed during our proceedings.
Services And Information
In cases where certain problems arise, we have made various exceptions to full security for the tenant in certain conditions. The last Amendment I spoke to concerned the problem of owner-occupiers, and I explained why the Government did not feel entitled to go either narrower or wider than what was in the Bill. I put this in all seriousness to the Minister, because of all the new Clauses we have dealt with today this one raises the most serious human issues.

- But no one can pretend that this Clause deals with the problem of retirement when “retirement” does not come into it.
- Each applicant will be considered on an individual basis.
- Inpatient centres run tight intensive rehabilitation programs which leave patients with less destructions and influence back to addiction dependence.
- Nevertheless, the house had sentimental connections for them, it having been the home of the wife’s mother, and the farmer had to decide what to do about the property.
- The house having sentimental connections, he and his wife did not want to give it up, so as he would not be requiring it himself for two, three or five years, he could either leave it unoccupied or let it on a short-term basis.
- The community programme provides a bridge to independent activities, such as rehearsal and concert visits at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
He told us that it would be difficult to prove the desire of the owner to occupy the premises. It is ludicrous suddenly to suggest that, in present circumstances, it has become impossible. These people are to a large extent buying houses and ordering houses to be built here at the moment. Many of these houses are being built in my constituency which, like Poole Sober living houses and other places on the South Coast, is a highly desirable area to retire to. Many of these people have ordered houses and it is physically impossible for them to take themselves from South Arabia to Aberdeenshire to occupy these houses purely to bring themselves within Clause 14. These people will have no protection whatever, unless the new Clause is inserted.
People Who Have Been Placed Because The Local Authority Does Not Have Appropriate Services Available
It will not be beyond the wit of the Ministry to ensure that in the event of it turning out that by bogus means and false pretences the landlord has got possession, he shall not be allowed to obtain vacant possession for the purpose of selling it. I hope that the Parliamentary Secretary will think about this matter again. This is a very different case from the genuine case of a man wanting to live in future in another part of the country. That man buys a house with vacant possession, and has to decide whether or 745not to let it. If he lets it, there is an entirely different position from that under the 1933 Act. I do not agree that this would be a great breach of the 1933 Act. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock), I find it difficult to understand why the Government have difficulty in defining what is meant by “retirement”.
Its duration is very much dependent on the individual concerned and on the severity of the problems they are recovering from. For example, it may only take a few weeks to recover from a mild infection, but a number of months to get better after a major operation.

The Billingslea Recovery Residence is a long term residential facility that provides a supportive alcohol and drug free environment in a community setting. This service will enhance alternately funded detoxification services and are approximately six to twelve months in duration. This service is provided to adult males, age 21 to 65, with substance abuse issues residing in Bibb, Jones, Monroe, and Twiggs counties. The date which the dispute commenced will determine which guidance is to be applied to the dispute.
