Asylum Welcome's response to the Immigration Bill 2015

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

The Immigration Bill will be debated in parliament on 13th October. If implemented, it will have far-reaching impact on asylum seekers, refugees and detainees, and on local communities and local authorities.

In particular we are concerned about:

  • Changes to the right of appeal
  • Changes to asylum support, especially those changes affecting detainees and those affecting families with children
  • New rules for landlords
  • The lack of a time limit on detention

Please read our briefing paper on the Immigration Bill 2015 and response to the consultation on asylum support.
