‘A bit of a cheek’ for migrants to complain about conditions in overcrowded Manston, says minister

A Home Office minister said it was ‘a bit impertinent’ to immigrants complaining about conditions at the overcrowded treatment center in Manston in Kent.

Chris Philip spoke as a rushed operation continued to reduce the number of people held at the center, where 4,000 people were crammed for a month into a facility intended to house 1,600 for up to 48 hours during initial assessments.

Talk to BBC Radio 4 today program about the group of migrants who the Home Office said had a place to stay, he said: ‘So the picture is still muddled even two days later.’

Mr Hug said a large number of people entered Westminster on Wednesday from Manston with Home Office bracelets and documents but who “were not dealt with properly”.

“Some of them were put on a coach to Norwich 12 hours later so they arrived mid day and then were taken away at 1am overnight – very early Thursday morning and then another group of 11 people showed up at our homeless services yesterday, working with local charities to get them off the streets.

“So 11 people showed up, seven of whom want to be hosted by the Home Office, so there’s clearly been a breakdown in communication here.

“We believe these people have been rough sleeping overnight and ultimately the chaos in Manston and the pressure to fix this is having a ripple effect with people being left rough sleeping on our streets in London. »
