HL Deb 27 November 2002 vol 641 c40WA
Baroness Anelay of St Johns

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What mechanism exists between the National Asylum Support Service and the Legal Services Commission as to notification of the location of dispersed asylum seekers, both those with support and accommodation and those with support only, so that the Legal Services Commission can ensure there are sufficient supplies of legal advice for the asylum seekers to access it. [HL84]

Lord Filkin

Reports are sent monthly to the Legal Services Commission which give information on the number of asylum seekers supported in National Asylum Support Service (NASS) accommodation in each cluster area and the number in receipt of financial support only, broken down by region.
