Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill — Do not withdraw support from failed asylum seekers who are citizens of Zimbabwe — rejected — 6 Jul 2004 at 15:45

The majority Not-Contents rejected an amendment[1] to the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill.

The Bill gives the government the power to withdraw support from failed asylum seekers who do not take reasonable steps to leave the UK[2]. The amendment in this vote aimed to exclude asylum seekers from Zimbabwe from these provisions. However, it was defeated.

The Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill became law in 2004. Its main aims were to:[3]

  • 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
