§ Mr. Bernie Grant
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which organisations and individuals have made submissions concerning the Asylum Bill; and whether he will place copies of the major submissions in the Library.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
Since July we have received representations from various organisations concerning the Asylum Bill. These include Amnesty International, Asylum Rights Campaign, Charter '87, citizens advice bureaux, church groups, the Council for Racial Equality, the General Council of the Bar, Justice, the Refugee Council and UNHCR. We have also received approximately 1,000 letters from members of the Refugee Council and UNHCR. We have also received approximately 1,000 letters from members of the public many of whom are members of one of the above-named organisations and who have submitted pro-forma letters.
I have no plans to place items of correspondence in the Library.
