Failed Asylum Seekers

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list those local authorities who have withdrawn support and accommodation from failed asylum seeker families in addition to those councils piloting implementation of section 9 of the Asylum and Immigration Act (Treatment of Claimants etc.) 2004. (79292)

Support may have been withdrawn by local authorities supporting families under the Interim Provisions where the authority identified that a family had been granted indefinite leave to remain (ILR) under the Family ILR concession or had otherwise been granted leave to remain; mainstream support is available in such cases. There have been no withdrawals of asylum support under section 9 since December 2005 when the pilot commenced its evaluation phase.
