HC Deb 12 March 1984 vol 56 c24W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if his Department will increase the aid given to Shelter National Housing Aid Trust for its work in preventing the break-up of families in housing need.

Sir George Young

Representatives of Shelter National Housing Aid Trust recently discussed the trust's financial position with officials of my Department. In considering their application for grant for 1984–85 under section 13 of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977, we will take into account all relevant factors including the usefulness of the work they are doing.
