Lord Graham of Edmonton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will publish forecasts of asylum applications and details of how the cost of supporting asylum seekers is calculated. [HL1649]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

A note entitled 'Estimates of public expenditure on asylum seeker support' has been placed in the Library and circulated to interested parties. My right honourable friend the Home Secretary is also today publishing an Information Document which sets out further details of the proposed asylum support arrangements. He is arranging for copies to be sent to every Member and placed in the Library.
