Banning people seeking asylum from working makes no sense.
Lifting the ban would:
Save the Treasury £333 million per year
Mean people seeking asylum aren't forced to live on £5.84 per day
Improve the mental health of people seeking asylum and lessen their vulnerability to exploitation
We'd challenge anyone not to back our campaign in the face of this overwhelming evidence. Will you challenge your MP?
