The Joint Committee on Human Rights (JCHR) has decided to conduct an inquiry into the human rights issues raised by the treatment of asylum seekers in the UK.

The inquiry will consider any significant human rights concerns relating to the conditions of life for asylum seekers and failed asylum seekers in the UK, focusing in particular on those relating to:

(i) access to accommodation and financial support;
(ii) the provision of healthcare;
(iii) treatment of children;
(iv) the use of detention and conditions of detention and methods of removal of failed asylum seekers
(v) treatment by the media.

Memoranda of evidence addressing any or all of the above matters should be submitted to the Committee by 29 September 2006.

Submissions should be addressed to Nick Walker, Commons Clerk of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, Committee Office, House of Commons, 7 Millbank, London SW1P 3JA. Electronic submission is acceptable, but a signed hard copy should also be sent. In any event, witnesses are asked wherever possible to accompany hard copy by an electronic version, preferably in Word format, and e-mailed to jchr@parliament.uk.
