COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: Refugee Council to undertake survey on asylum seekers

The Refugee Council is conducting a survey to find out what the public really thinks about whether asylum seekers should be allowed to work.

Thousands of questionaires have gone out to relevant stakeholders, including small and large private businesses, training providers, public-sector bodies and refugee community organisations. In addition, people can make their opinions known via the Refugee Council web site.

The survey is in response to the Government's recent withdrawal of asylum seekers' right to work while they are awaiting a decision on their status.

The results will be presented to ministers as part of a conference the charity is running in the last week of August.

The survey was launched three weeks ago and 500 responses have already been received, said a spokeswoman Jean Candler.
