    Default More funding needed for Swindon

    JC claimed in today's PMQs that homelessness is 3 time higher in Swindon than it is in Surrey.

    JC suggest funding to redistribute the homeless to Surrey to share the burden.

    Before anyone gets annoyed I made that last bit up.

    I don't believe there are any homeless in Swindon. Aren't that all in one of DP's BTLs?

    There are none of those in Surrey. Do you think that solution should be extended to Swindon?

    Yes, but I’m also a bit busy today. In my defence I did manage to provide the link to the Government stats on official homelessness, so I managed to do half of Yorkie’s job for him.

    Most probably the homeless increase are those over 1hr late paying their rent.
