Staying with this issue, the last point that I want to raise with you and I do hope that you will agree with me and get your support for some action on this, is that the current statutory definition of overcrowding states that it is acceptable for children to sleep in living rooms, hallways and kitchens.
I recently visited a couple with five children in a two bedroom flat. The only space that the children could just gather, because everywhere else was beds, was in the passageway, which was just totally unacceptable. The problem here is that the definition has remained unchanged since 1935 so clearly there is a need here to change that definition so that we can allow children to live dignified and healthy lives.
I notice that Shelter has called on the Government to do some work in this area. Will you join me in sending a joint letter, with me wearing my hat as Chair of LHC, to support Shelter's call for the Government to review this area?
