Commenting on official homelessness statistics released today, showing a 10% increase in the number of children in temporary accommodation year-on-year, Scottish Liberal Democrat Housing Spokesperson, Caron Lindsay, commented:

"It is heartbreaking that the number of children in temporary accommodation is going up.

"Both governments have failed these families - the SNP by failing to build enough houses, the Tories by cruel cuts to social security which have left struggling families at greater risk of homelessness.

"It's time for the SNP to get to grips with the housing crisis and do what the Lib Dems have been saying and increase the number of houses for social rent."
