HC Deb 29 March 1976 vol 908 cc395-6W
Mr. Parkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what response she has received from local authorities to her Department's Circular 37/72 inviting them to set up experimental projects to meet the needs of homeless single people requiring care and support in a residential environment.

Mr. Meacher

Local authorities were not required to submit returns but experimental projects are known to have been set up in a number of areas such as London, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and the West Country, some with initial help from my Department.
