To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 15 January 2018 to Question 121912, if she will publish the template grant agreement that is to be the basis for the agreements for the local authority asylum support liaison officers between the Government and successful applicant local authorities.

The Government is committed to ensuring that the transition from government-supported accommodation into mainstream services is as smooth as possible for all those granted refugee status.

My Department will be awarding £1.75 million from the Controlling Migration Fund in 2018/19 to successful English local authorities who applied to trial new ways of supporting new refugees into housing, employment and English language learning.

We have no current plans to publish the template grant agreement letter, although individual local authorities may choose to do so once they have been notified of the outcome of their application.
