Asylum: Females

Question for Home Office

UIN HL4586, tabled on 30 November 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to ensure that there is single sex housing for uncoupled women at all points during the asylum process.

The Home Office provides accommodation and other support to asylum seekers who would otherwise be destitute.

Those receiving this support are not required to share sleeping quarters with unrelated individuals of the opposite sex, but may, depending on the circumstances, be placed in accommodation facilities which are used to house such individuals.

There are no plans to change these arrangements.
