Govt urged to build 'fair, humane, effective' system

The chief executive of Refugee Council, a charity which works with refugees and asylum seekers, said:

While the political parties continue to argue over who is responsible for the chaos at the UKBA, there is little discussion of the people who have been waiting for months or years for a decision on their cases, with their lives on hold.

We would urge the Government to focus their attentions on building a fair, humane and effective asylum system, with the protection of people fleeing persecution at its centre.

– Refugee Council chief executive Maurice Wren
