AN OXFORDSHIRE MP has written to the Homelessness Minister, asking him to confirm that ‘the funding will continue’ for a scheme that houses rough sleepers in hotels that are not being used.

Layla Moran called for a ‘public statement’ from the Minister to confirm funding will continue for Everyone In.

The Lib Dem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon said: “It would be irresponsible for the Government to pull emergency funding for local authorities to accommodate rough sleepers, particularly as many have underlying health conditions that make them susceptible to Coronavirus.”
