We can’t cope with more migrants, councils tell May: Town halls warn families face increased tax bills to pay for the influx

  • Home Office gives £40,000 a year to councils for each young refugee 
  • But the total annual cost to each council can be as high as £133,000
  • LGA’s David Simmonds says: ‘It isn’t right that taxpayers see rising bills’ 

Millions of families could face an increase in their council tax bills to pay for the influx of migrants from Calais, town halls warned last night.

Local authorities are expected to receive almost £40,000 a year from the Home Office for every young refugee they care for.

But they say the real cost can reach up to £133,000.
