Immigrants: Detainees
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 1 April 2019 to Question 235392, what estimate he has made of the number of homeless foreign nationals detained by Immigration Compliance and Enforcement teams in the last 12 months for which figures are available.

The Home Office does not hold the information requested in a reportable format. The data that is recorded on the housing conditions of migrants is largely volunteered by the migrants themselves, may not be reliable in all cases and does not allow for informed estimates of the numbers who are homeless. An attempt at an estimate requested could only be supplied at disproportionate cost.
