Cross Party Consensus on EDMOs returns

There was a debate on empty dwellings management orders in the House of Lords earlier this week. It was triggered by when two conservative peers, Baronesses Scott and Hanham, prayed against the new legislation.
Baroness Hanham (Conservative) objected, but it turns out her objections were mainly based on misunderstandings over how the legislation will work. A sensible contribution from Baroness Maddock (Liberal Democrat) and a very full response from Baroness Andrews (government minister) put everybody at ease and the objection was withdrawn. Cross party consensus on EDMOs it seems has returned.
