To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he will make a statement on the work Clearsprings Management Ltd. undertakes for the National Asylum Support Service; [100842](2) for what reason Clearsprings Management Ltd. requires a confidentiality agreement from landlords; and if he will make a statement. [100853]

Clearsprings Management Ltd. has a contract with the National Asylum Support Service (NASS) to provide accommodation for destitute asylum seekers. As part of the contract, Clearsprings Management Ltd. is required to respect a confidentiality clause. This is primarily to protect the identities and location of asylum seekers accommodated within their properties. To enable it to comply with the terms of its contract with NASS, Clearsprings Management Ltd. would need to ensure that its contracts with subcontractors also included a confidentiality clause.
