Asylum: Hotels
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government which hotels have accommodated asylum seekers during the COVID-19 pandemic; and how many asylum seekers are in each such hotel.
Answered on: 18 June 2020

Hotel usage is permitted under the Asylum Accommodation and Support Contracts as contingency accommodation.

As a result of the Covid-19 crisis a higher proportion of asylum seekers than usual are being accommodated in full-board hostels and hotels.  The Home Office does not publish the total amount of service users accommodated in hotels, or the whereabouts of the vulnerable people we support.
