The new Housing Minister has admitted the target to get homeless families out of hotels and B&Bs will be missed.
The previous Minister, Simon Coveney, promised they would all be out of emergency accommodation by July 1st. Incoming Minister Eoghan Murphy admitted this morning that not all families will be out of hotels and B&Bs.
He said there were just under 650 families in emergency accommodation in the Dublin region at the end of May, down from 871 in March.
Minister Murphy said Dublin's four local authorities have promised him that by the end of this month, those families "will either by in their new accommodation in these new hubs or they will be notified in writing where they will be going in the coming weeks".
The government is re-modelling a number of industrial buildings to convert them to family hubs, where groups will have washing and cooking facilities as well as things like homework clubs.
