Prime Minister says he will consider previous Government's decision that all in-country asylum applications have to be made in person in Croydon
09/06/2010 13:03:00

I was lucky enough to be catch the Speaker's eye at Prime Minister's Questions today and raised the issue of the previous Government's decision that anyone applying for asylum in this country has to do so in person in Croydon. I asked him if he agreed that it is wrong to ask one local authority to shoulder what should be a national responsibility and, if so, whether this Government would review the decision. I am delighted that he replied that he would be happy to consider that and would ensure that Home Office Ministers get in touch with me "so that we can deal with this problem". A very encouraging response.
