HC Deb 20 May 1974 vol 874 cc50-1W
Mr. O'Halloran

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what studies are being carried out into the number of single homeless people in the central London area; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Robert C. Brown

I do not know of any present study into actual numbers. My hon. Friend will be aware of the difficulties in obtaining reliable figures about this group, particularly those who sleep rough.
