The Home Office publishes quarterly figures on the number of asylum seek-ers housed in dispersed accommodation, including under Section 95, by lo-cal authority in the Immigration Statistics release, in table as_16q and 17q in volume 4 of the Asylum data tables. These are available at:https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/immigration-statistics-july-to-september-2017/list-of-tables#asylum

This does not include those asylum seekers who are accommodated with friends and family, and who are not in receipt of support.
