A rise in the cost of hotel bills for the UK

The Home Affairs Committee has heard that the UK is thought to be spending £7m per day on hotels to house asylum seekers.

Since February 2022, the total cost has risen by more than £2m- with £1.2m of the total cost being put towards shelter and accommodation for refugees who have recently fled from the Taliban to safety in the UK.

With fears the cost could rise even further, MPs are deliberating to find a cost-effective solution.

Concerns about the conditions of processing centres

Many officials have grown concerned about the “wretched” conditions of processing centres in the UK, in particular, the Kent site.

It is thought that the site at Manston airport has passed the point of being unsafe, with the independent chief inspector of borders and immigration writing to the Home Office to express his concerns about the conditions after he visited a site recently.

A representative for the Home Office comments on the situation

When questioned on the rides in rates of refugees and costs, the Home Office have said:

“The rise has been exponential, and we think that is, in the main, due to the fact that Albanian criminal gangs have gained a foothold in the north of France and they’ve begun facilitating very large numbers of migrants”.
