Government today have backed the Homelessness Reduction Bill. Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP (Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government) today announced he would officially support the Private Members’ Bill.
When the Bill was first created, we acknowledged that Government were being backed into a corner about the issue and they could resist. We wanted Government backing before we officially supported the Bill.
Hugo’s Earthquake officially backs reducing homelessness at the point of access to Local Authority services and therefore supports this Bill.
Press Release out shortly.
