asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the voluntary organisations in Scotland which have received financial assistance from his Department or from local authorities under section 13 of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977, the nature and amount of the assistance provided and the period for which assistance was or is available.
My right hon. Friend has provided grant aid under section 13 to the following organisations:
|Scottish Council for Single Homeless
|Scottish Women's Aid
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he intends to review the operation of the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977, in line with the review promised by the Secretary of State for the Environment.
No. A code of guidance has been issued more recently in Scotland than in England and Wales, and there have been no indications since its issue in September 1980 that a further review of the operation of the legislation in Scotland is necessary.
