§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, for the latest and most convenient stated date, how many homeless persons there were in the London borough of Newham; and what were the figures for May 1979.
§ Sir George Young
Information for individual local authorities on the number of homeless households for whom local authorities have accepted responsibility for securing accommodation are set out in the series of documents "Homeless Households Reported by Local Authorities in England", copies of which are in the Library. The release of additional information about homelessness for an individual local authority is the responsibility of the authority concerned.
