John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Housing Secretary, responding to the latest government homelessness statistics, said:
“The national shame of high and rising homelessness this Christmas is a direct result of ten years of the Conservatives.
“There’s no more powerful reminder of the need for a Labour government than the homelessness we now see in every town and city in our country.
“We will continue to hold the Tories hard to account for their decisions which are making this problem worse and to make the case for change.”
