An inspection found that unaccompanied asylum-seeking children were less than half as likely to be granted asylum in London as in the Midlands.
According to the report:
- In London only 15.3% of unaccompanied children were granted asylum
- That compares to 37.5% in the Midlands
Asylum decisions for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children took an "unacceptably long" average of 141 days in the Midlands - double the 64 days taken in London, report author Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration John Vine said.
