To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many landlords or letting agents receiving public monies under the COMPASS asylum accommodation contracts have received a (a) civil penalty notice and (b) banning order under the Housing and Planning Act 2016 since April 2017; and how many landlords or letting agents have been prosecuted under the Housing Act 2004 since September 2012.

The government does not pay private landlords for accommodating asylum seekers as there is no direct contractual relationship between the Home Office and private landlords. Accommodation is provided through third party accommodation providers under the COMPASS contracts.
