Dear Hammersmith and Fulham Borough Council,

I have been told that the council has been renting units within the 'IQ Student Accommodation Hammersmith' building in 230 Shepherd's Bush Road to provide temporary and emergency accommodation for residents.

Could I please ask the following:
1) How much money did the council spend in 2020/21 on renting units within 230 Shepherd's Bush Road for use as temporary/emergency accommodation?
2) How many individual families or parties were placed in this building during 2020/21
3) How many different buildings, which are classed as student accommodation, did the council hire in order to provide temporary accommodation during 2020/21 and during 2019/20? (Please provide separate figures for each year).
4) How much money did the council spend on providing emergency and temporary accommodation in 2020/21, 2019/20 and 2018/19? (Please provide separate figures for each year).

Yours faithfully,
