    The Progressive Alliance has reaffirmed its commitment that nobody has to sleep rough in Milton Keynes following the news that yesterday was the hottest day on record.

    Milton Keynes Council has been working on several successful initiatives to tackle rough sleeping including the recent launch of the shelter at the old bus station, which provides overnight accommodation for up to 18 people who would otherwise be sleeping rough.

    New data shows that an estimated 17,750 local families are in serious financial difficultly, all while the Conservatives are distracted trying to fix their crumbling government.

    Research conducted by Bristol University and Abrdn Financial Fairness Trust has found that rising prices have pushed more people into "serious financial difficulties" than the pandemic. These families are forced into reducing the quality of the food they eat, selling or pawning possessions or cancelling or not renewing insurance.

    Layla Moran, Lib Dem MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, has slammed the Government as 'duplicitous' for including a clause in the new Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill which would allow for the reintroduction of the recently repealed Vagrancy Act.

    The clause allows for the Secretary of State for DLUHC to re-criminalise rough sleeping, despite the House of Commons voting to repeal the Vagrancy Act earlier this year. The Government claims that this is 'placeholder text' which will be amended at the Committee Stage of the Bill, but has not given assurances that rough sleepers will be protected from the return of this legislation.
