S5W-22746: Patrick Harvie (Glasgow)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 25 April 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether it is involved in any contingency plan discussions regarding the potential eviction of hundreds of people from asylum accommodation in Glasgow, in light of the Court of Session decision on 12 April 2019 in the so-called "lock change" case against Serco and the Home Office.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 9 May 2019

The Scottish Government is not directly involved in discussions between the Home Office, Serco and Glasgow City Council about next steps following the judgement in the Court of Session. However, I have written to the Immigration Minister, the Chief Executive of Serco and the Leader of Glasgow City Council to seek information about the current position and contingency planning.
