§ Mr. Prosser
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish forecasts of asylum applications and details of how the cost of supporting asylum seekers is calculated. 
§ Mr. Straw
A note entitled 'Estimates of public expenditure on asylum seeker support' has been placed in the Library and circulated to interested parties. I am also today publishing an Information Document which sets out further details of the proposed asylum support arrangements. I am arranging for copies to be sent to every Member and placed in the Library.
