Peter Aldous calls for action to tackle homelessness

7th February 2019

Speaking in a debate on homelessness, Peter Aldous praises the work of St Mungo’s and Access Community Trust in Suffolk and calls for an assessment of any correlation with the roll-out of universal credit, long-term funding for homelessness services and an increase in the amount of affordable housing available.

I cannot be present for the whole debate, but I too wanted to thank St Mungo’s, as well as Access Community Trust in Suffolk. Such organisations do great work. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that to meet this challenge and solve it, three things need to be done: an assessment of any correlation with the roll-out of universal credit, a move towards long-term funding for homelessness services, and a dramatic increase in the amount of affordable housing we provide in this country?

I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I should probably finish my speech, because he has just said everything—[Interruption.] Steady on, I am not giving up that easily. He made three salient points, and I hope the Minister heard them being made from her Back Benches.
