保守黨議員說他們將繼續為庇護所酒店命名

"他寫道:"為了保護人們的安全和隱私,內政部的做法是不公開說出人們下榻的酒店,但我們知道,越來越多的國會議員在提出這個問題時說出了具體的場所。

"當然,國會議員應該能夠在議會中提出任何選區問題,這是正確的,但這可以在不指明具體酒店並可能使其更容易受到攻擊的情況下完成。"

然而,代表阿什菲爾德的保守黨議員李-安德森在Facebook上寫道。"和你們中的許多人一樣,我厭倦了看到我們的招待被濫用,以及那些只是經濟移民的人通過小船和可疑的人權立法來欺騙我們的系統。

巴塞特洛(Bassetlaw)的保守黨議員布倫丹-克拉克-史密斯(Brendan Clark-Smith)說,他將永遠 "歡迎那些真正需要幫助的人",但他也發布了類似的信息,說。"我不會被壓制,並將利用賦予我作為議員的特權,繼續就這個問題發表意見"。

前保守黨部長戴維斯也對在其選區Haltemprice和Howden的一家特定酒店安置尋求庇護者的計劃提出關切,以及另一家已經被用於此目的的酒店。

"通常情況下,收容移民或尋求庇護者的酒店或其他設施[是]眾所周知的,所以我看不出在這個問題上要求限制國會議員的言論自由有什麼力量。"

他補充說:"當移民在其選區的住房問題直接關係到我們的選民和移民所依賴的服務,如醫療保健和教育的提供時,國會議員對其發表意見尤為重要。"


"It has been Home Office practice to not publicly name hotels where people are staying in order to guard their safety and privacy, but we know that increasingly MPs are naming specific premises when they raise this issue," he wrote.

"It is of course right that MPs should be able to raise any constituency issue in Parliament, but this can be done without identifying a specific hotel and potentially making it more vulnerable to attack."

However, Tory MP Lee Anderson, who represents Ashfield, wrote on Facebook: "Like many of you, I am sick and tired of seeing our hospitality abused and people who are simply economic migrants cheating our system via small boats and dodgy human rights legislation.

Brendan Clarke-Smith, Tory MP for Bassetlaw, said he would always be "welcoming to those in genuine need" but posted a similar message, saying: "I will not be silenced and will use the privileges given to me as a Member of Parliament to continue to speak out on this issue."

Former Conservative minister David Davis has also raised concerns about plans to house asylum seekers at a specific hotel in his constituency of Haltemprice and Howden, as well as another which is already being used for the purpose.

"It is normally the case that hotels, or other facilities, housing migrants or asylum seekers [are] well known so I cannot see any strength in calls to restrict the freedom of speech of Members of Parliament in this matter."

He added: "It is particularly important for MPs to speak out about the housing of migrants in their constituency when it directly relates to the provision of services on which our constituents and the migrants rely such as healthcare and education."
