Sleeping Rough: West Yorkshire

Volume 465: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate she has made of the number of rough sleepers in (a) Leeds and (b) West Yorkshire on the most recent date for which figures are available. (159853)

Estimates of the number of people sleeping rough were submitted by local authorities in their 2007 Housing Strategy and Statistical Appendix returns. These returns were based on the results of recent local authority street counts (or estimates in areas which have not conducted a recent street count) and recorded one rough sleeper in Leeds and four in the West Yorkshire region as a whole.
