HC Deb 21 May 1973 vol 857 cc29-30W
Dr. David Owen

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether the criterion used by Plymouth City Council for defining homelessness as covering those people whose children are currently in care or were to be taken into care because the parents had no accommodation, or where the courts had granted permission to evict, was the definition of homelessness accepted by his Department for the purposes of statistics on homelessness.

MR. Dean

I am making inquiries from the Plymouth City Council and will write to the hon. Member.
