“G4S has informed UPM that owing to contractual issues we will not be proceeding with them as a supplier of accommodation services under the COMPASS contract. These services will now be provided by Mantel, Live Management Group, Target and Cascade, all experienced suppliers of housing provision and pastoral care services, whom we have already contracted.”
As always, UPM refused to comment on the issue, redirecting all enquiries to UKBA. It is understood that UPM have been banned from speaking to the press by the Home Office.
