In addition, accommodation Providers must consult on every property that is to be used for asylum dispersal with Local Authorities who will assess its viability in relation to social cohesion, as well as a number of other factors</del></p><p><del class="ministerial">A governance structure has been established to facilitate a joint review into asylum dispersal which will be co-designed and co-produced by Local Au-thorities and the Home Office</del>.</p><p> </p><p><ins class="ministerial">The Home Office record the number of all individuals referred to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) and this information is published Quarterly by the National Crime Agency. This information does not distinguish an individ-ual’s immigration status. The reason for this is two-fold, firstly because the NRM is not an immigration route by which individuals should regularise their stay in the United Kingdom and, secondly, because a person’s immigration status is not permanent and can change. <p><ins class="ministerial">Providing the information requested would therefore require a manual check of individual records which could only be done at disproportionate cost.</ins></p></ins></p>
