Question from: County Councillor Jackie Charlton Subject: Support by PCC for people seeking sanctuary (asylum seekers and refugees)
As there is some concern that a response is still outstanding to the questions outlined below from Knighton & District Refugee Support Group, it seemed prudent and right to ask these questions here as it is a matter of public concern.
1) How many people seeking sanctuary (asylum seekers and refugees) did Powys County Council support to resettle in Powys in 2019 – 2020?
2) Does Powys County Council have a willingness to support people seeking sanctuary and if so how many people does it intend to support this year?
3) Is PCC willing to support and resettle unaccompanied children seeking sanctuary?
4) If PCC is willing to support people seeking sanctuary have they communicated this commitment to the UK Government?
