HC Deb 26 January 1998 vol 305 c116W
Mr. Rooney

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what restrictions on the amount of study or training an asylum seeker may undertake who is in receipt of income support and who is not allowed to sign on as unemployed incurs. [25564]

Mr. Keith Bradley

Asylum seekers in receipt of Income Support are treated in the same way as any other Income Support recipient. They are allowed to undertake study if they fall into one of the exempt groups, for example lone parents and disabled people.
