Universities: Stranded Students

Volume 686: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their policy on the treatment of persons who become stranded in the United Kingdom, having been granted asylum in the United States, and having been refused second applications to the United States authorities for renewal of their convention travel documents, following their attendance at institutions of higher education in the United Kingdom.[HL7934]

The Immigration and Nationality Directorate would consider any application for leave such persons may make. If they did not qualify for leave we would look to remove them to the United States or to another country.
