Inside the cruise ships migrants would stay on under Priti Patel’s new plans
MIGRANTS would be given “hotel-style” room service while being held on two giant ferries out at sea, The Sun can reveal.
And plans put before Home Office ministers reveal one migrant staying in a cabin alone would cost taxpayers up to £140 a NIGHT.
The 200m craft boasts executive and deluxe suites, beauty salons, three restaurants, coffee bars, a theatre, five bars and a disco. Mandarins believe the Europa, which has been halted from its usual Helsinki to Tallinn route since September, could safely house around 1,400 migrants
The Sun understands any migrants held on board ships out at sea would not be detained under immigration powers. That would mean they would be free to roam the vessel at will in safety. A source said: “The advantage is that they would be kept securely offshore in relative comfort, but with no danger of absconding.”
