Only 379 of those 873 families are awaiting permanent rehousing. In 1992/93, the City Council provided permanent homes for 1,297 homeless households. More than 80 per cent of these households were housed in Westminster; the remainder either had no local connection with the borough (in terms of jobs, education, family) or requested to be housed outside the borough.
Incidentally, Hackney, Newham, Haringey, Tower Hamlets and Camden house at least 200 more households outside their borders than Westminster does.
