§ Mr. Marks
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what financial support her Department gave to referral services and accommodation for single homeless people in Greater Manchester under her Department's Circular 37/72, in 1973–74 and 1974–75; what support is to be given in 1975–76; and if she will make a statement on the likely effect on the projects in the area.
§ Mr. Alec Jones
My Department granted £65,000 in 1973–74 and has made available nearly £68,000 so far this year. The exact amount for 1975–76 has yet to be determined but full consultations are taking place with all those concerned.
