Consultation and impact assessment on ending support for failed asylum seekers

A consultation and impact assessment on the new panic proposals to remove asylum support for failed asylum seekers have been published. These reveal the details of the proposals. The summary of the Government’s preference in the impact assessment is: Remove support for failed asylum seekers whose asylum claim is finally rejected on or after 1 July 2016, except those with outstanding further submissions or a medical or other practical reason outside their control why for the time being they cannot leave the UK.
