Croydon Council accused the Home Office of forcing homeless families out of temporary accommodation, after it was outbid for an “important” property.
And what did the Home Office want with this building, then?
A few weeks ago, the Home Office outbid the Council for a ten year lease to use Stonebridge Lodge, which currently houses up to 80 homeless families, as accommodation for asylum seekers.
Hmmm. Doesn’t sound like the fabled Tory crackdown is going to happen then, does it? The commenters agree:
That’s certainly a better approach than sending them a UKBF taxi service to our shores…
Chief Executive of Croydon Council, Jo Negrini, wrote a letter of complaint asking the secretary of state, Priti Patel, to reconsider her decision and explain the Home Office’s silence on the issue.
Yes. I think we’d all like that.
