Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 21 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how many families with (a) children and (b) a pregnant woman who are in B&B accommodation have been so for more than one week.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 29 September 2016

The Scottish Government does not currently hold robust data on length of stay in temporary accommodation. A new data collection was introduced in April 2016 which will allow for this type of analysis in the future, following an appropriate development period.
