Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — Asylum seekers should have early access to full legal advice and representation — rejected — 17 Jul 2002 at 18:49

The majority Not-Contents rejected an amendment[1] to the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill. The intention of the amendment was to give early access to legal advice and representation for asylum seekers. However, the amendment was defeated.

The Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill became law in 2002. Its main aims were to:[2]

  • Allow asylum seekers to be detained at any time
  • Disallow appeals from within the UK from failed asylum seekers who are citizens of a specific country
  • Deny asylum seekers support unless they make their claim "as soon as reasonably practicable" after arrival into the UK
  • Create accommodation centres to house destitute asylum seekers
