UK: Shortage of asylum seeker accommodation and "appalling" prejudice, says report


"The Commons Home Affairs Committee says the red doors and wrist bands scandals leave major questions to be answered about the running of the COMPASS contract providing asylum support services. It says delivery of the contract has been mostly unsatisfactory to date, with these episodes highlighting flaws in accountability and oversight of the contracts, and a failure to ensure that the way asylum seekers are treated and housed meets basic standards.

The Committee also warns of an impending shortage of asylum seeker accommodation and a lack of fair and equal dispersal throughout the country."
