To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many days the Poppy project has had beds which were not being used in the last 12 months. (277691)

I have been asked to reply.

The Poppy project records vacancies on a weekly rather than daily basis. Information from the Poppy project shows that over the last 12 months there was at least one unoccupied bed-space in 36 out of 52 weeks. The vacant periods could have ranged from one night to a week.
