Asylum: Females

Volume 492: debated on Tuesday 12 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many female asylum seekers were interviewed with their children present during the first or subsequent substantive interview in (a) 2007-08 and (b) 2008-09. (272601)

The UK Border Agency does not record statistics in relation to the attendance of mothers with their children during the substantive interview on any of our internal databases. The information could be obtained only at disproportionate cost through the examination of individual case files.
