HC Deb 20 October 1993 vol 230 cc253-4W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has relating to provision of local authority accommodation for single mothers; and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

In my answer today to the hon. Member for Greenwich (Mr. Raynsford), I have indicated that we will be consulting interested organisations in due course about our proposals to reform the homelessness legislation, with the aim of ensuring fairer access to permanent social housing for everyone who needs it. I will consider what further accommodation provision may be needed for single mothers in that context.
