Minutes from the HL3 Scrutiny Group Meeting (12 February 2013)

The HL3 Return identifies the information required by the Scottish Government for each homeless household placed in tempoary accommodation.

The Data Specification, for use in developing IT systems, identifies the format of the data which should be sent to the Scottish Government, and the validations which will be used to check the data.

The guidance notes and a flowchart are to provide clarification for homelessness caseworkers when completing the return.
