a. This information broken down by financial year (1st April – 31st March), i.e. the above number in 2010/2011; 2011/2012; 2012/2013; 2013/2014; 2014/2015; 2015/2016
AND

2. Private tenants claiming housing benefit from a Bed and Breakfast and/or all other accommodation with board and lodgings (as described above) on 1st January in each of the above years.

Dear FOI,

Thank you for providing the attached 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?

Yours sincerely,

Rachel Yates

FOI, Rutland County Council

Good morning,

For clarification:

The numbers are those claiming Housing Benefit (HB) in Bed and Breakfast (B&B) accommodation, all of whom were placed there as being homeless. There are none being paid HB in B&B for any other reason.

Kind regards
FOI Team
