We were very happy recently to add our collective name to the joint inter-agency letter, co-ordinated by Asylum Matters, calling on the Home Secretary and the Defence Secretary to to scrap all plans for asylum accommodation centres, following the decision to withdraw the planned site at Linton-on-Ouse.

And it was great to see this letter on the front page of the Yorkshire Post yesterday.

Thanks to Asylum Matters for co-ordinating this important letter, and it was good to see so many organisations standing firm against the use of accommodation centres for people seeking asylum in our country.
