Ms Armstrong

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many households were accepted as homeless in each local authority area in 1979–80; and what are the latest full-year figures.

Sir George Young

[holding answer 28 March 1994]: I have today placed in the Library a table giving for each local authority in England the numbers of households which they reported as having accepted responsibility in the years 1979 to 1993 to secure permanent accommodation, under the homelessness provisions of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977 and the 1985 Housing Act.
