asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answers by Baroness Andrews on 8 February (WA 160), whether in conjunction with Westminster City Council they have approached those providing nightly soup runs in Howick Place in order to ask them to desist; if so, when those discussions took place and with whom; and whether any target date has been set for the cessation of this practice.

The Government have made no approach to the voluntary sector organisations that undertake soup runs in Howick Place. I understand that Westminster City Council is in discussion with those providers.
