The ‘The Immigration and Asylum (Provision of Accommodation to Failed Asylum-Seekers) Regulations 2005’ provide for failed asylum seekers to be forced to undertake community work in exchange for accomodation. These regulations have never been enforced and so should repealed.

Why is this idea important?

The legislation was merely a Daily Mail headline-grabbing tool for the then Home Secretary David Blunkett. The provisions are unlikely to ever be used so should be taken off the statute book.
