CIH comment on Queen's speech


Commenting on today’s Queen’s speech, CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat CBE said: "At a time when more and more people are becoming homeless, we are disappointed that government has not taken this opportunity to introduce a new duty for local authorities to prevent people losing their homes.

"We’ve seen the positive impact that a homelessness prevention duty has had in Wales with a 70 per cent success rate in the first three quarters of 2015/16 – so we urge government to consider seriously the scope to introduce similar measures in England."
