UK: Disused cruise ships could be used to house asylum seekers – Braverman
Home Secretary Suella Braverman has not ruled out using disused cruise ships to house asylum seekers, saying “everything is on the table”.
She said it was “unacceptable” that housing asylum seekers in hotels costs the taxpayer more than £5m a day.
She told a House of Lords committee a range of alternatives are “on the table” and are being looked at.
Rishi Sunak raised the idea of using cruise ships during his summer Tory leadership campaign.
