When discussing homelessness, what can get overlooked is the experience of children without a home, living in temporary accommodation in B&Bs, or sub-standard houses that they may have to leave with little notice.

What impact is this having on their health, both mental and physical?

Newsnight’s Health Correspondent Deb Cohen has been meeting the children and families affected by this hidden homelessness.

In the studio, Emily Maitlis is joined by Conservative MP and Father of the House of Commons Sir Peter Bottomley.
