Nicola Sturgeon has been accused of hypocrisy with officials told to send more migrants who arrive by boat to Scotland.
Figures cited by The Sun on Sunday show 61 asylum seekers were housed in “dispersed accommodation” outside Glasgow under a scheme in March, 2022.
The same publication reports this was out of a total of 53,530 who needed somewhere to stay with Glasgow providing accommodation for 4,483 and London taking in 8,220.
Home Office ministers are reportedly furious and have ordered officials to find new hotels north of the border to house more people arriving as migrants in the UK.
A senior British Government source told the same publication: “Nicola Sturgeon rails against our policies but refuses to take her fair share.
“Outside of Glasgow, they barely house any of the Channel boat migrants. Sturgeon has been an hypocrite. We are on the hunt for more hotels on her patch.”
The Scottish Government and SNP have been approached for comment.
