Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill — Do not detain asylum seekers under the age of 18 — rejected — 10 Oct 2002 at 17:15

The majority Not-Contents rejected an amendment[1] to the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill.

The Bill gives the government the power to detain persons who are subject to immigration control[2]. The amendment in this vote aimed to prevent the government from detaining people under the age of 18 because of child welfare concerns. However, it was defeated.

The Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill became law in 2002. Its main aims were to:[3]

  • 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
