The plans to ‘send em’ south’ and settle more in posh areas such as the Home Counties.
Labour Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham claimed that Sajid Javid had told him he wants to see more areas which currently take no refugees step up.
In a letter, the Home Secretary promised a “reduction in the proportion of dispersal” to authorities who already take large numbers according to The Sun.
He also added that there will be a “commensurate increase” in those who take lower numbers or none at all.
The Home Office said in a statement: “We take the wellbeing of asylum seekers and the local communities in which they live extremely seriously. We will continue to work closely with Local Authorities across the United Kingdom to deliver on our statutory obligation to house destitute asylum seekers whilst their asylum claims are determined.”
