HC Deb 12 March 1984 vol 56 cc69-70W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many homeless people in Wales are housed in temporary accommodation on the latest available figures; and if he will give comparable figures for two previous years.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Information on temporary accommodation for the homeless is collected by household and at the end of 1983 there were 491 households accommodated in this way. The comparable figures for 1982 and 1981 were 468 and 596 respectively.
