However, schools’ financial returns show that the proportion of income from all donations and voluntary funds in London Primary schools was 0.7% in 2017-18, which is the same as the national average. In Lambeth, this figure was 0.3% in 2017-18.</p> more like this

answer text <p>This Government remains committed to transforming the response to domestic abuse.</p><p>Victims of domestic abuse are treated first and foremost as victims. Non -British victims residing in the UK are able to apply for support from authorities, many of whom will have statutory obligations to support victims.</p><p>For individuals in the UK who are married, or partners of, British or settled sponsors and who claim to be victims of abuse, there is the option of applying for immediate crisis support under the Destitute Domestic Violence Concession (DDVC). In addition, funding has been made available via the tampon tax, to support a range of support networks. In March of this year, a further £1,090,000 was made available to specifically to be used to provide safe accommodation, and other support functions.</p><p>The new Domestic Abuse Bill will be the platform for delivering changes to support victims and will enable victims to have the ability and confidence to report these crimes. We will carefully consider recommendations from the Joint Scrutiny Committee about reviewing the scope of the DDVC and look forward to seeing report from the Joint Committee on the draft Bill. We will also want to consider the evidence – both written and oral – submitted to the Joint Committee on the Draft Domestic Abuse Bill and any recommendations made by that Committee. We are not complacent about our responses to domestic abuse, and strive to see what more can be done.</p>

answer text <p>The Housing Act 1985 provides a statutory overcrowding standard, breach of which is a criminal offence. Official statistics on the number of households that are statutorily overcrowded are not routinely collected. According to the Department's English Housing Survey, in 2017-18, there were approximately 746,000 households living in overcrowded accommodation in England. This equates to 3 per cent of households. The Department does not hold information on the prevalence of overcrowding in the London Borough of Lambeth</p><p><br> Ref: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/774820/2017-18_EHS_Headline_Report.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/774820/2017-18_EHS_Headline_Report.pdf</a> .</p> more like this

answer text <p>​The information requested is not held centrally. The Department does not hold data on the number of in-year admission applications made and the length of time a child has been out of school prior to their parents or guardians submitting an application.</p><p>Parents can apply for a place at any school, at any time. When parents apply for a school place outside of the normal admissions round, this is classed as an in-year admission. This process is managed at a local level by either the local authority, where it coordinates the in-year admissions for schools in their area, or directly by the admission authority of the school.</p> more like this

answer text <p>MHCLG does not provide an estimate of the number of people sleeping rough across the whole of the UK.</p><p>MHCLG’s latest annual Rough Sleeping Statistics, published on 31 January 2019, show the total number of people counted or estimated to be sleeping rough in England only, on a single night in Autumn 2018 was 4,677. This was down by 74 people or 2 per cent from the 2017 total of 4,751 and was up 2,909 people or 165 per cent from the 2010 total of 1,768.</p><p>These annual single night snapshots of the number of people sleeping rough are provided by all local authority areas in England from 2010 onwards. In Lambeth, there were 50 people sleeping rough on a single night in autumn 2018. This was up 37 people or 285 per cent from the 2010 total of 13 people. The area with the highest number of people sleeping rough on a single night in Autumn 2018 was Westminster with 306 people sleeping rough.</p><p>These statistics are available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/rough-sleeping-in-england-autumn-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/rough-sleeping-in-england-autumn-2018</a></p><p>This Government is committed to reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why last summer we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy which sets out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period. This year, Rough Sleeping Initiative investment totals £46 million and has been allocated to 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 750 additional staff and over 2,600 bed spaces.</p>
