More than half a billion pounds has been spent by London local authorities on emergency housing since the last general election.
Councils have had to place people in hotels and B&Bs, after they presented themselves as homeless.
- Haringey Council had the biggest bill of £197 million,
- Westminster spent £111 million
- Enfield spent £59 million
- Kensington and Chelsea spent £53 million
- Newham spent £35 million
- and Islington spent £33 million
The total spend in London amounts to £630 million since 2010.
The Labour party has criticised the revelation saying the number of families with children living in such accommodation was at a 10-year high.
Housing charity Shelter also condemned the figures, saying cuts to the housing safety net were a false economy.
