G4S and Serco failing to house asylum seekers properly, says watchdog

Outsourcing companies G4S and Serco are failing to provide adequate housing for vulnerable asylum seekers or acquire habitable properties for them to live in, according to the government’s spending watchdog.

The government is seeking to recover rebates worth £3m and £4m respectively from the companies because of their poor performance, the National Audit Office has disclosed.
