Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill — Give asylum seekers more time to appeal — rejected — 7 Jun 2004 at 15:50

The majority Content voters accepted an amendment[1] to the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill. The amendment increased the amount of time an asylum seeker had to lodge an appeal against their rejected claim to 10 working days[2].

Even though this amendment was passed it was modified again at a later date. As a result when the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill became law in 2004 the time in which asylum seekers had to appeal was reduced to five days[3].

The Act's main aims were to:[4]

  • 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
