Sharing the asylum pack under Tory game rules.

Just under 3,000 were in Manchester, Rochdale and Bolton, meaning one in seven across the country have been housed in one of those three boroughs.

There were only five in Theresa May’s local authority of Windsor and Maidenhead.

The disparity is due to the government’s ‘dispersal’ policy, which sees people seeking asylum status moved out of the south east to areas with lower housing costs. As a result the region is one of several, including Liverpool, to take disproportionate numbers without any extra funding for the strain put on local services.
