Thangam Debbonaire – 2020 Comments on Winter Rough Sleeping

The comments made by Thangam Debbonaire, the Shadow Housing Secretary, on 7 December 2020.

This winter, without the last resort of night shelters, rough sleeping is more desperate than ever.

The Government promised to end rough sleeping for good – it must ensure everyone has a safe, Covid-secure place to stay this winter.
