Homelessness

30th January 2017
On Friday 27th of January local MP, David Burrowes, spoke in a debate concluding a bill to reduce homelessness. Mr Burrowes has made every effort to aid the bill through the legislative process by scrutinising the bill in committee and leading whipping operations to ensure the bill received enough votes to proceed. 
 
The Bill which will place a clear duty on local councils to prevent homelessness received cross-party support. 
 
Mr Burrowes said “The litmus test for the Bill will be its success in addressing the complex needs of those individuals who visit my constituency surgery because they are always in and out of the system. Enfield Council will no longer be able to wait for a bailiff eviction notice before it has to help vulnerable people threatened with homelessness. This Bill will break that cycle of crisis management”.
