The government has been accused of producing too much asylum
legislation rather than making the system work better.
“The government has passed too many bills on the grounds that
legislation is a substitute for the system working well,” said
Humfrey Malins MP, shadow minister for home affairs. The government
needed to address poor pay and training of immigration officials,
He also said there was a need to ensure asylum was discussed
sensibly to avoid extreme right-wing parties gaining support. The
government should also take more of a strategic approach towards
immigration, such as planning how many migrants were needed to
supply the UKjob market over the next 10 years.
