Answer

The information requested in questions 1 and 3 asks for the numbers and costs relating to accommodating people under the specific powers of the relief of homelessness powers. 

Looking only for people housed under these powers, has resulted in a nil result.  The answers for each question for the whole of last year are shown below.  If you would like to redefine your request, and resubmit it for a more accurate view of the numbers of people accommodated in B&B’s, temporary accommodation and in private accommodation by our Housing Needs team, please let me know.
