Repossession Orders: Hampshire

Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent reports she has received on strategies to manage housing repossessions in each housing authority in Hampshire; and if she will make a statement. (202929)

Under the Homelessness Act 2002, local authorities were required by July 2003 to publish a strategy for tackling and preventing homelessness and ensuring that accommodation and support is available to people in their district who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. This must be reviewed and published every five years and as such all authorities must have completed a review by July 2008.
