Below is the text of Mr Major's written Parliamentary Answer on Bed and Breakfast Accommodation on 9th April 1987.


Ms. Richardson Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the number of people in bed-and-breakfast accommodation paid for by his Department in (a) Ilford, North, (b) Ilford, South, (c) Barking and (d) Dagenham; and what is the cost in each case over the last 12 months.

Mr. Major I regret that the information requested is not collected by individual local offices and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
