Motion text

That this House, while welcoming the Government's November 1991 announcement of an initiative to provide emergency accommodation for homeless people sleeping rough in London between December 1991 and March 1992, views with concern that the very limited initiative announced for the rest of the country is primarily for the 1992-1993 financial year and will not help those who end up sleeping rough this winter; notes that the numbers of people needing emergency housing provision outside London are greater than in the capital; calls upon the Government immediately to extend to the rest of the country the full scale of initiatives being undertaken in London and to make the necessary financial resources available to local authorities to co-ordinate the provision of these services.

leave out from 'House' to end and add 'regrets the fact that some people cannot find accommodation to suit their needs; recalls that before the excessive regulation of the rented sector there was a tenants market in housing; and believes that the only way to eliminate homelessness is to repeal the Rent Acts and re-establish a free market in private rented housing which would include homes for homeless people'.
