Imran Hussain – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Imran Hussain on 2016-10-07.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what guidance her Department plans to issue to local authorities on their responsibilities to resettle Syrian refugees in the second to fifth year of resettlement.

Mr Robert Goodwill

The Department for Communities and Local Government and the Home Office work with councils to resettle refugees in the UK.

It is for each local authority to decide what type of support is required for each resettlement case. A funding instruction covering Years 2- 5 of the scheme is to be issued to local authorities shortly, which includes examples of how funding can be spent. It also explains how councils can claim funding from the exceptional cases fund.
