Leonie Cooper AM: Can I just say, Deputy Mayor, that it is very welcome to have you here today and preceded by the Minister? It has been a good morning talking about housing, which is such a crucial issue for our city. At the sharp end of housing is homelessness, which is the area I wanted to ask you about.
Assembly Member Copley and I will be moving a motion later on this morning on homelessness because it has been very much on the increase, particularly in London. I just wondered if you had managed to have any discussions with the DCLG with regard to suitable funding coming towards local authorities to assist with their new duties under the Homelessness Reduction Bill.
