Input to the UN Special Rapporteurs on the Right to Adequate Housing and on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights. The UK Home Office has, during the span of the Covid-19 pandemic, adopted and issued implementation guidelines for new provisions for the deportation of non-nationals found to be sleeping rough in the country. In a welcome development, NI's Communities Minister joined officials elsewhere in the UK in saying that she would not direct her department or bodies under it to implement a Home Office directive around deporting foreigners found sleeping rough.
