Says Green Councillor Dick Wolff, "We welcome this necessary review into the tragic deaths of nine homeless people and its critique of Oxford City Council's current approach. However, we reject any implications that such tragedies are inevitable. According to the most recent data from the ONS, Oxford City has, proportionately, the fifth highest homeless death toll in England & Wales ; worse than many areas in central London and other major conurbations such as Birmingham, Nottingham and Liverpool. Something is clearly broken."
