Llanelli’s MP calls for town to move forward and come together following Home office decision to withdraw plans at Stradey Park Hotel

Dame Nia Griffith MP the elected member of Parliament for Llanelli has issued a statement on the decision by the Home Office to withdraw plans to house asylum seekers at Stardey Park Hotel.

The MP had been active in putting pressure on the Home Office and had been highlighting some of the activities of the hotel owners.

Dame Nia Griffith MP said: “The announcement by the Home Office to withdraw its plans for the Stradey Park Hotel is welcome and I am pleased that they have finally listened to the people of Llanelli who knew that it was the wrong decision all along.

This debacle has seen the hollowing out of a key landmark hotel in the area with the loss of almost 100 jobs.  It has created divisions within local communities and taken up valuable resources from our public services at a time when they were already stretched.

We now need to move forward and bring our town together once more.”
