HC Deb 01 April 1981 vol 2 cc105-6W
38. Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what discussions he has had with the Church of England and the Salvation Army concerning their local hostels for single and homeless people.

Mr. Stanley

I discussed hostels problems last November with representatives of both the Salvation Army and the Church Army, and with representatives of other housing associations engaged in the provision of hostel accommodation. I have since visited a number of Salvation Army hostels in London.
