HOMELESSNESS AND SQUATTING

That this House notes research by Crisis showing that 39 per cent. of single homeless people have squatted; acknowledges that conditions in squats are often horrendous; further notes that homeless people who squat are among the most vulnerable in society, with 37 per cent. having mental health problems and 20 per cent. being dependent on alcohol; and calls on the Government to ensure that any reform of the law on squatting does not penalise vulnerable homeless people and to focus on tackling the root cause of the problem by ensuring that no homeless person is forced to squat.
