/ The Tories are letting down asylum seekers and the communities where they are allocated
Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the Government’s failure to ensure a fair system of allocation for asylum seekers, said: “The Government’s policy is deeply flawed and unfair. When it comes to the settling of asylum seekers, it’s a case of Tory nimbyism.
“They are overwhelmingly allocated to poorer areas. Ministers have also cut funding, even for councils
that have capacity to take more.
“By failing to institute a fair system of allocation, or a fair system of funding, the Tories are letting down asylum seekers and the communities where they are allocated.”
