The Government's Housing team and the Labour Housing team pictured together to show their joint backing of the Bill.
I was pleased to be in Parliament today to support the Second Reading of the Homelessness Reduction Bill. It was good that it got cross party support and the backing of both the Government’s Housing team and the Labour Housing team pictured together and thus passed its Second Reading.
I think this Bill is a really positive step forward to reducing homelessness, but there is so much more that the Government needs to do to tackle homelessness and the housing crisis. As Shadow Minister for Housing and Local Government, I will keep up pressure on the Government to ensure they take the measures necessary not only to build the homes we so desperately need but to provide the range of services that we need to tackle homelessness.
