§ Mr. Adley

§ Mr. Armstrong
, pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 1st August 1978], gave the following answer:
The available information on homelessness, for the first four months in which the Act has been in force, is contained in statistics published today, a copy of which has been placed in the Library of the House. The Department does not collect information on the size of local authority housing waiting lists.
