Commenting, as Scottish homelessness targets are released which show a 20% reduction in homeless applications compared to the same period last year, Scottish Liberal Democrat Housing spokesperson Jim Hume MSP said:

Jim Hume MSPJim Hume MSP"Homelessness still blights far too many lives in Scotland.

"While we welcome a 20% decrease in homeless applications, there is absolutely no room for complacency.

"Liberal Democrats are proud of our pivotal role in establishing the 2012 homelessness target. The Scottish Government must do all it can to meet this hugely important target by the end of this year.

"That's why Liberal Democrats argued for more funds to build homes for rent in the Scottish budget. To reach these homeless targets and the desperate need for more homes in Scotland, we will continue to press the Scottish Government on this.

"Scotland needs a housing sector that is built on protecting the most vulnerable."
