Does the hon. Gentleman think that it would help to inform and improve decisions about sheltered accommodation if there was some more reliable research into the overall total cost of this decision to remove wardens? Establishing that overall total cost would take into account contingent expenses in the national health service and in social services when wardens are withdrawn and floating support is provided, because there is a cost differential in the longer term.
