Generally can I have:

2) The amount of funding from central government (DCLG or Home Office) the council has received in the last 4 years to aid the Home Office with immigration enforcement of rough sleepers?
3) Any reports that evaluate previous work with the Home Office/ICE in aiding with immigration enforcement of rough sleepers?
