S. Salman

Guardian Society, Mar 13th 2002, p. 4

The government's Homelessness Directorate is to rethink the problem with an emphasis on prevention, not just cure, and proposals include a hostel inspectorate, action against councils relying too heavily on bed and breakfast and the moving of homeless people away from areas of high housing demand. These ideas are outlined in an original report, "More than a Roof".
