star this property answer text <p>There are no plans to increase the period to 50 days.</p><p> </p><p>If an asylum seeker receiving support from the Home Office is granted refugee status they are given notice that their support will stop 28 days later and provided with a Biometric Residence Permit (BRP). The BRP is the main document they need to prove their eligibility to take employment or apply for benefits from the Department of Work and Pensions. Additionally, under new arrangements the Home Office offers the refugee assistance to make a benefits claim by arranging an appointment with a local DWP office.</p><p> </p><p>The Home Office also issues the refugee with a national insurance number (NINO). Possession of a NINO at this stage is not essential to make a benefits application as the DWP can provide one as part of the benefits claim process. We have, however, been working to ensure that the NINO is issued at the same time as the BRP and plan to implement a new process in the new year whereby the number is printed on the BRP.</p>

star this property answer text <p>No. In the criminal justice jurisdiction, the Forensic Science Regulator (FSR) determines the standards and timeframes for providers of forensic services to reach accreditation. The Government is committed to giving the FSR statutory powers as soon as Parliamentary time allows. At that point the FSR will be able to prohibit providers from submitting evidence to the criminal justice system if they do not hold accreditation.</p><p>In family proceedings, there is no legal requirement currently for such tests to meet any specific scientific testing standard. The court will consider the veracity of that evidence as for any other expert evidence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Asylum seekers are not allowed to work in the UK unless their claim has been outstanding for at least 12 months through no fault of their own. Those who are granted permission to work are restricted to jobs on the Shortage Occupation List. The policy is designed to protect the resident labour market so that access to employment is prioritised for British citizens and lawful residents, including those granted refugees status. We have no plans to change this policy.</p><p> </p><p>The data requested on the number of asylum seekers granted permission to work is only held on paper case files or within the notes sections of the Home Office's databases. This data is not aggregated in national reporting systems, so information on the number of asylum seekers allowed to work could only be obtained through a manual case search at disproportionate cost.</p> more like this
