HC Deb 18 April 1990 vol 170 c866W
Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how much extra money will be available to Bournemouth borough council under his new proposals to tackle homelessness.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The extra £112 million resources for 1990–91 which I announced recently will go to local authorities in London and the south-east where. homelessness pressures, particularly the numbers in bed-and-breakfast accommodation, are greatest. Authorities outside this area, including Bournemouth, generally face less severe pressures of homelessness.
