Dear foi,

Thank you for providing this information, it is most useful.

I just wanted to clarify your data to ensure that my clarification doesn’t change the data you have provided. Can I clarify that you have provided information for the number of individuals who are claiming housing benefit in Bed and Breakfast/Board and Lodging private accommodation (i.e. not owned by the council, housing associations or supported accommodation) and who have not been placed there by the council under homelessness duties?

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or require more information.

Many thanks

Rachel

Yours sincerely,

Rachel Yates

Good morning Ms Yates

The information provided was for individuals paid HB that were not in council accommodation, housing associations or supported - however, they would have been placed in this type of accommodation under the homelessness duties.

Should you require any further information, please let me know.
