The complete and utter disregard from Tory UK Government Ministers in deciding to go ahead with this proposal despite strong opposition locally and a lack of any proper consultation with the surrounding communities is, even for them, truly shocking.

Using the Stradey Park Hotel as emergency accommodation for around two hundred asylum seekers caught up in the processing backlog created by this current Government, is likely to put extra pressure on local public services and has already been met with stiff opposition from councillors, health providers, the police and others.

I join with them, and with so many concerned local residents here in Llanelli, in continuing to vigorously oppose this ill thought out and unworkable decision.
