Home Affairs Committee publishes report on Asylum Bill

In response to the findings of the Home Affairs Committee report on the Asylum Bill, published today, Maeve Sherlock, Chief Executive of the Refugee Council, said:

“We are very pleased the Committee has highlighted the poor quality of initial decision-making. Rather than remove essential legal safeguards, the Government should concentrate on getting decisions right first time”.

Ends.
