|19 Dec 2018, 4:05 p.m.||Grenfell Tower: Fires||Lord Kennedy of Southwark|
To ask Her Majesty's Government how many families left homeless after the Grenfell Tower fire are still not in permanent accommodation.
Answer (Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth)
There are 201 households from Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk requiring rehousing following the Grenfell Tower fire. As of 17 December, the latest data from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea shows that of the 201 households, 193 households have accepted an offer of permanent accommodation and 161 of these have moved in. There are 40 remaining households yet to move into permanent accommodation. 22 of these households are living in high quality temporary accommodation and 18 households are living in emergency accommodation (9 in hotels, 8 in serviced apartments and 1 household is living with family). Every household has a suitable property reserved for them. I expect the Council to continue to support households to move into permanent accommodation as quickly as possible.
