Tulip Siddiq MP MP for Hampstead and Kilburn
Back in January, I asked Rishi Sunak at PMQs why on earth 200 asylum-seeking children were missing from Home Office-run hotels. Three months on, the Government has finally admitted here in response to a Parliamentary Question that I tabled that almost 200 children are still missing.
When I raised the issue with the Prime Minister he assured me that action was being taken to find the children, so it is shameful that they haven’t been located. As I say here, these vulnerable children are at high risk of exploitation by criminal gangs and Ministers must act now to stop these children being exploited.
