Homelessness: Expenditure

Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) how much homelessness grant was paid to each London local authority in each of the last five years; (158998)

(2) how much homelessness grant was paid to voluntary sector organisations in each London constituency in each of the last five years.

Since 2003-04, the majority of our homelessness grants are paid to local authorities to support them in their work on tackling and preventing homelessness effectively. Previously the majority of funding went direct to the voluntary sector. We do however continue to provide homelessness funding direct to the voluntary sector, where appropriate.

The following table shows the level of revenue and capital funding allocated to London local authorities over the last five years.
