Ridiculous state of affairs over the weekend with those who have illegally entered our country complaining that they don’t have en-suites all to themselves at expensive central London hotels. The Government are right to make savings by making up to 4 people share a room (depending on the size of the room). Clearly, if they’re genuinely refugees escaping persecution, you’d have thought they would welcome this generosity from the tax payer.
Again, I asked for timescales for the Novotel being brought back to its proper use. We don’t have enough hotel accommodation in Town, and it will have an economic impact. Actually imagine it will become more of an issue now that Ipswich Town have been promoted. Demand for hotel accommodation associated with next seasons games will increase. I will keep on pushing as hard as I can to get a successful outcome asap. It is an unacceptable state of affairs. Government have committed to ending hotel use, but this needs to be delivered soon.
No one who comes here illegally from safe countries such as France should be able to stay here.
So far, numbers of small boats have decreased 20% between January and May this year, this is the first reduction since the small boats crisis began. Alongside, a 90% reduction in Albanian arrivals. The Albanian agreement is delivering results.
