216.Sub-paragraph (2) amends section 55(1) (victimisation) so as to disapply it from new sections 24A to 24L (which require landlords and managers to provide reasonable adjustments in certain circumstances for disabled people). This is because victimisation of a disabled person in relation to the letting of premises is already provided for by the interaction of sections 22 to 24 with section 55, and by the provisions of new section 24F.
217.Sub-paragraph (3) amends section 55(2)(a)(iii) of the DDA by inserting after “done anything under” the words “or by reference to”. This applies and generalises in relation to Parts 2 to 4 of the DDA the provisions of subsection (6) (inserted by the Amendment Regulations) which apply only for the purposes of Part 2. Subsection (6) is consequently repealed.
218.Sub-paragraph (4) ensures that section 55 applies to a non-disabled person who is discriminated against under section 15B (councillors, and members of the GLA) (inserted by section 1).
