Asylum Seekers

Volume 708: debated on Friday 27 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the average length of time that an asylum seeker remains on (a) Border and Immigration Agency Asylum Section 4 support; and (b) Section 95 support. [HL1364]

The way that the UK Border Agency records data on support under Section 95 and Section 4 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 does not enable the collation of the average length of time individuals spend on either of these forms of support without an examination of individual case records at disproportionate cost.
