Dear FOI NEDDC,

Thank you for providing the above 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
