Question

In response to my question 2017/2101 you stated that "The GLA does not share individual-level information relating to rough sleeping with the Home Office." However, a Guardian article published on 19 August 2017 revealed that the GLA has shared information with the Home Office that has led the deportation of EU nationals. In light of this, could you explain why and how this information was shared with the Home Office?

The GLA does not share individual-level information relating to rough sleeping with the Home Office.  Although there were inaccuracies in the article you refer to, it was correct insofar as any date the GLA shares is aggregated.
