§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps have been taken since the report of the Department of Health and Social Services working group on homeless young people to establish information services at railway and coach stations.
§ Mr. Raison
The working group reported in 1976. In November 1979 the Piccadilly advice centre was opened at Piccadilly underground station to provide advice and information for newcomers to London, including homeless young people. The services provided by this organisation and by the Alone in London service which has a similar remit are advertised on posters on most London mainline stations and at the Victoria coach station.
