The council has been quizzed on what is being done to prevent women from being stuck in hotels

Homeless women are still being sent to live B&Bs in Glasgow as the use of hotels increases due to demand.

The convenor for homelessness said: "Whilst we continue to have a reliance on B&B accommodation due to the level of demand there is for emergency accommodation the Health and Social Care Partnership works to minimise the length of stay within this type of accommodation. "In light of the increased use of hotel accommodation we are reviewing our approach to safeguarding. This will include supporting women who are accommodated in bed and breakfast type accommodation.

Councillor Casey added: "It is also important to remember that 74 per cent of homeless households are accommodated in temporary supported accommodation or furnished accommodation within community settings."
