Afghan refugees who were housed in hotels after fleeing the Taliban takeover of Kabul will be given at least three months’ notice to leave their accommodation from the end of April.
Veterans’ minister Johnny Mercer said the government is “stepping up” support pledging £35m in funding. But those who turn down an alternative offer of accommodation will not receive a second offer.
Labour’s shadow defence secretary John Healey accused the government of giving Afghans “the cold shoulder”.
