Home > News > Tory Immigration Minister quizzed on Stradey Park Hotel proposal

Today in Parliament I told the Tory immigration minister, Robert Jenrick MP, how shocked and concerned we are to hear that he is planning to house 300 Asylum seekers in the Stradey Park Hotel.

I asked him to meet me to hear our concerns and asked him what he is doing to prevent the need to commandeer the Stradey Park Hotel, and to sort out the Home Office backlog of 160,000 claims so those from safe countries can be returned and those who are genuine refugees can move out of hotels and be integrated in small numbers into suitable communities.

He refused to answer and failed to agree to even meet with me to listen to the views of local people on the subject.
