Local authorities have been asked to concentrate their available resources on homeless people and others in special need; it is for them to decide how to accommodate people whom they have accepted as homeless. Recent Government measures to help reduce reliance on bed and breakfast accommodation were set out in answer to a question by the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Mr. Wareing) on 16 January. Further steps are continually being considered by us and, I am sure, by the authorities most concerned.
