Bill entitled an Act, to make exceptional provision, in the public interest and having regard to the manifest and grave risk to human life and public health posed by the spread of the disease known as Covid-19; in order to mitigate, where practicable, the effect of the spread of that disease and to limit the adverse consequences resulting, or likely to result from the spread of that disease; and having regard to the burden caused by that risk to the normal functioning of society; and recognising the likelihood that necessary restrictions imposed in order to reduce that spread and its effect on society will impede the ability of tenants to find alternative accommodation and the consequent impact on the well-being of persons and families and on the availability of vital public service functions in relation to housing; to make provision in relation to the operation of certain provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 during a period of restrictions imposed upon travel to, from or within certain geographical locations pursuant to regulations under section 31A of the Health Act 1947; and to provide for related matters.
