Priti Patel spends almost £5 million a day on hotel bills for illegal migrants
Home Secretary Priti Patel has admitted spending a staggering £4.7million every day on housing illegal immigrants in hotels.
The Home Office were forced to correct the false figure given by Tricia Hayes to the Home Affairs Committee.
The senior civil servant told MPs that the Home Office were spending £1.2 million a day on housing asylum seekers.
Later, however, the Government admitted that this number related only to Afghan migrants and accommodating migrants from other countries actually costs an additional £3.5 million a day.
