To ask the Scottish Government how many people are in temporary accommodation in each local authority area.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 6 July 2017
The Scottish Government collect information on the number of households and the number of dependent children in Temporary Accommodation from Local Authorities via the HL2 data collection. However, the total number of people in temporary accommodation is not collected. Temporary Accommodation statistics are published on a bi-annual basis. The most recent published data presents the number of households in Temporary Accommodation, broken down by local authority, as at 31 March 2017.
