HC Deb 12 July 1984 vol 63 c661W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what study his Department has made of the positive findings in Waltham Forest of assisting housebound people to make shopping trips.

Mr. Newton

We are aware of the scheme operating successfully in Waltham Forest. The Department is currently grant-aiding the Women's Royal Voluntary Service to carry out several pilot projects of a similar kind.
