Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, Etc.) Bill — Third Reading — 1 Mar 2004 at 21:57

The majority Aye voters agreed to give the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, Etc.) Bill its Third Reading[1]. This means it now moves to the House of Lords for their consideration.

The Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill became law in 2004. Its main aims were to:[2]

  • Simplify the process of appeal for asylum seekers
  • Criminalise people who arrive into the UK without a valid travel document unless they have a reasonable excuse
  • Stop supporting failed asylum seekers and their families if they do not leave the UK
  • Allow the government to tag and track asylum seekers
  • Provide accommodation to failed asylum seekers who cannot return home immediately
