What assessment has the Welsh Government made of the Scottish Government declaring a national housing emergency, and the implications this will have on access to housing in Wales?

Answered by Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning | Answered on 22/05/2024

Access to housing in Scotland is a matter for the Scottish Government. 

In Wales, we remain committed to the Ending Homelessness High level Action Plan (2021-2026) which confirms the importance of partnership working in making homelessness rare, brief and unrepeated.

This work is underpinned through investment of almost £220m in this year alone in homelessness and housing support services. We have also invested record levels of funding to support the delivery of additional social sector homes in Wales.
