Motion text

That this House notes with serious concern that asylum seekers accommodated, or who were accommodated under section 95 or 4 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, in asylum dispersal areas across the UK, are either threatened or are subject to evictions by Home office contractors - notably Serco in Glasgow - delivering the public service of asylum housing, with no court oversight or due legal process; regards such practices as highly inappropriate and contrary to the UK's best traditions of procedural fairness and the rule of law; and recommends changes are made to ensure legal due process on evictions applies in asylum accommodation.
