HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 cc154-5W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the number of persons officially classified as homeless in the Greater London area in October, 1964; and how this comparies with the number in June, 1970.

Mr. Dean

I would refer the hon. Member to my hon. Friend's reply to the hon. Member for Hackney, Central (Mr. Clinton Davis) on 12th February, 1971. The number at 30th June, 1970, was 12,200.—[Vol. 811, c.282.]

Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will now make a statement as to the Government's policy with regard to the Greve Report on Homelessness.

Sir K. Joseph

It would be premature to make a statement before I receive the report of the Working Party which I announced in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Paddington, South (Mr. Scott) on 18th March.—[Vol. 813, c386.]
