§ Sir Hugh Rossi
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he proposes to take to ensure that the Housing Corporation has sources of independent advice on social trends related to homelessness and other matters to help it determine the viability of schemes presented to it by housing associations, as recommended by the Women's National Commission in its report on homelessness amongst women, November 1983.
§ Sir George Young
The allocation of its funds to individual projects is a matter for the Housing Corporation. In considering the report of the Women's National Commission I shall discuss with the corporation its recommendations on the evaluation of applications for funds for individual projects.
