Government Response to Consultation on its New Plan for Immigration
You can see the Government's 22 page response here.
LD4SOS think the consultation was a sham as little notice seems to have been taken of the points we and others made.
- 75% of respondents said they opposed many of the policies set out in the New Plan.
- The Government says it wants a fair asylum system; but how can a system that effectively criminalises people in need of protection and leaves many without a safety net, be fair?
We did not waste our time in responding even though it might seem so. The Bill has not yet become law. We owe it to asylum seekers and refugees to keep standing up for them.
