§ 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.
