HC Deb 20 October 1993 vol 230 c253W
35. Mr. Milligan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many people were accepted as homeless in the most recent two quarters for which figures are available.

Sir George Young

The number of households accepted as homeless by local authorities in England in the quarter ending June 1993 is estimated at 34,410. This is some 1,700–5 per cent.—less than the 36,120 accepted in the previous quarter.

This is the fourth quarter in succession in which the number of homelessness acceptances has fallen.
