Housing needs, homelessness and lettings
This chapter highlights the record levels of homeless households in temporary accommodation, and introduces two tables showing levels of homeless households
in temporary accommodation in Scotland and Wales, to complement the similar table for England in the main compendium of tables. The chapter also discusses
the 2004 Spending Reviews' increased investment for new affordable housing and the findings of the Barker Review.

Note: The majority of the tables in The Review contain UK-based figures, but sometimes figures for Great Britain are used depending
upon the sources. All other tables will refer to the country(ies) concerned. Where English regional figures are shown, this is usually
indicated in the title. Tables showing breakdowns between England, Wales, Scotland and/or Northern Ireland are indicated with a single
*, and those showing international comparisons with two **.
Data in tables and figures is frequently rounded and/or updated and therefore will not always add up exactly.
