The information is taken from the English Housing Survey 2009-10. It was estimated that around 3.2 million dependent children were living in non-decent homes at that time.
The previous Government set a target that all social housing should by 2010 meet the Decent Homes standard. This was not met, which is why we are providing £1.6 billion of funding over the spending review period to help make 127,000 council homes decent, and a further £0.5 billion to stock transfer housing associations.
