Some of the new accommodation sites are in the vicinity of popular immigrant resident areas.
A government spokesperson said: “We want immigrants to be as close to their own communities as possible while still having access to other sections of the UK population as a whole.
“When immigrants arrive in the UK, we can simply direct them straight to their new accommodation. It saves a lot of hassle hanging around street corners, looking for work and finding somewhere to stay.”
The new places are part of the PM’s social reform and integration program. This is designed to introduce immigrants to members of their community already resident in the UK and make them feel at home more quickly.
The spokesperson said: “We want all UK residents to feel safe, especially black and Asian members, so we are increasing the police stop-and-search powers and opening it up to all forces.
“We want all immigrants to feel part of our society and know that we are doing everything we can to assist with that.
“Welcome to the UK.”
