Home Office
Asylum: Housing
To ask Her Majesty's Government how many asylum seekers live in government-supported accommodation which has been deemed substandard.
Answered on: 06 March 2019

The Home Office has a rigorous contract compliance regime in place to ensure that the required performance standards expected of all providers, as defined in the contracts, are met. Home Office inspections have found that accommodation generally meets the required standards and where defects are identified they are resolved within the timescales set out in the contract. Where Providers have failed to meet these contractual service standards sanctions have been imposed.
