star this property answer text <p>This Government is clear that one person without a home is one too many and we are committed to preventing and reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. Time spent in temporary accommodation means people are getting help and it ensures no family is without a roof over their head.</p><p>We have put in place an ambitious programme of work to support households out of Temporary Accommodation. The Homelessness Reduction Act, which came into force in April 2018, bolsters the support offer for families and individuals by ensuring that there are more opportunities for local authorities to put in place bespoke interventions to either prevent homelessness from happening in the first place, or relieve them from a homelessness crisis where it does occur.</p><p>We have also put in place targeted funding streams focused on reducing the number of households in Temporary Accommodation as part of our £1.2 billion spending programme. For example, earlier this year, we announced £19.5 million for 54 projects through the Private Rented Sector Access Fund that will enable thousands of households to be supported away from Temporary Accommodation and into long term Private Rented accommodation.</p><p>We have also committed £37.8 million of funding to launch Capital Letters, a collaboration between London boroughs which will enable them to become more efficient in securing accommodation within London, reduce the cost to local authorities of procuring accommodation and enable them to place households closer to home.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Office for National Statistics (ONS) report annual statistics on perinatal mortality. The latest release of these data show that in England and Wales, the perinatal mortality rate in 2016 was 6.6 deaths per 1,000 births. This is similar to 2015 when there was a rate of 6.5 deaths per 1,000 births. There has been a general decline in national perinatal mortality rates in recent years; for example, the rate in 2010 was 7.4 deaths per 1,000 births. Data specifically for Slough have only recently begun to be published by the ONS. Therefore, it is not possible to make an assessment of the trends in perinatal mortality in the Slough constituency at this stage. However, in 2016 there were 29 perinatal deaths recorded in Slough representing a perinatal mortality rate of 11 deaths per 1,000 births.</p><p>The Government remain committed to the national ambition to halve the 2010 rates of stillbirths, neonatal and maternal deaths and brain injuries that occur during or soon after birth by 2025 and to achieve at least a 20% reduction in these rates by 2020. Further information about the measures in place to achieve the ambition can be found in the NHS Long Term Plan at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.longtermplan.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/nhs-long-term-plan.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.longtermplan.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/nhs-long-term-plan.pdf</a></p>
