Social Housing: Motion [Private Members]
These results are the most up-to-date and reliable figures currently available. The 2013 figure is, of course, subject to ongoing fluctuation due to households being allocated housing and new households applying for housing support. The claim that the 2013 figures have since increased to a figure of 130,000 on the basis of information obtained from current local authority files is flawed.
Basic mathematics show this. It does not compare like with like, apples with apples or oranges with oranges. It does not even consider the number of local authority lists that some tenants are on.
