CALL FOR EVIDENCE ON HOME OFFICE PREPAREDNESS FOR COVID-19
As part of the recent Home Affairs Select Committee inquiry into the Home Office’s preparedness for COVID-19 in asylum accommodation, the Home Affairs Committee has issued another call for evidence. The deadline to respond is 12pm on Thursday 4th February.
“The Committee invites further written evidence on the Home Office’s ongoing response to the pandemic across the following areas:
- Domestic abuse and child abuse;
- Online harms;
- Immigration and visas;
- Institutional accommodation;
- Management of the border.
Please note that submissions do not need to address all these issues. Within these themes witnesses are asked to consider whether the Home Office and its associated bodies (including providers of privately-run Home Office functions) have learned lessons and improved the policy and operational response as the pandemic evolves. ”
