The number of adults is the same as ten years ago, but the difference is that more than 3,000 children are homeless now. We have to put in more money to fix this and we will fix it. Progress is being made. Please do not do down the work that is being done by all of those involved in providing solutions, because 85 solutions a day is quite a lot. It is not enough to deal with it so we will do even more next year and we will get on top of this.
