Supporting Failed Asylum Seekers

EDM number 1072 in 2006-07, proposed by Nick Hurd on 07/03/2007.

That this House notes the statutory obligation that local authorities have to provide support services for asylum seekers that have exhausted all appeals on their applications; further notes that the Home Office has failed to deport many of these individuals; recognises that local authorities are not eligible for Government grants to provide these services and that this can place pressure on the delivery of other services and council tax levels; acknowledges the particular pressure placed on the London Borough of Hillingdon, which has a significant number of asylum seekers due to the location of Heathrow airport in the borough; and calls on the Government to remunerate councils fairly for the costs of supporting asylum seekers who have exhausted all appeals.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
