Abstract: A property (P) relative to the norm topology of a Banach space is a weak-invariant if, whenever $ A$ and $ B$ are weakly homeomorphic subsets of (possibly different) Banach spaces and ($ A$, norm) has property (P), then ($ B$, norm) has property (P). We show that the property of being $ \sigma $-discrete and the property of being an absolute Souslin- $ \mathcal{F}$ space of weight $ \leqslant {\aleph _1}$, both relative to the norm topology, are weak-invariants. These conclusions are obtained from a result concerning maps of metrizable spaces into function spaces.
