Angel Lodge, Wakefield

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to make an announcement on whether the bid to site initial accommodation facilities at Angel Lodge in Wakefield has been successful. (116231)

[holding answer 17 January 2007]: We have decided to use Angel Lodge to offer initial accommodation for asylum seekers in Wakefield. This facility will be used to complement similar facilities already operating in Leeds and Barnsley. We expect first entrants to the property in the week beginning 19 March and will operate the site at a reduced capacity in the first instance.
