To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Freud on 11 Oct (WA 229), which part of the responses by Homeless Link and the National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers to the March 2010 consultation on reform of the Social Fund justify the claim that these organisations support the provision of goods and services instead of cash for Community Care Grants.

The department interpreted the responses given to question 7 to the March 2010 consultation by Homeless Link and National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers as broadly supportive.

As stated in my previous answer 10 of the 17 respondents had reservations, this included Homeless Link and National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers.
