answer text <p>The UK has a proud history of providing protection to those who need it and this Government is committed to delivering a fair and humane asylum system.</p><p>Our current policy is consistent with EU law and permits asylum seekers to work, in jobs on the Shortage Occupation List, if they have been waiting for a decision on their claim for 12 months or more and the delay is through no fault of their own. We are tackling delays in decision-making and have plans in place to improve the speed at which outstanding claims are decided.</p><p>The Government is considering recent calls to change the current policy. However, the current approach aims to protect the resident labour market so that any employment meets our needs for skilled labour and to maintain the distinction between those who need protection and those who want to work in the UK, who can apply for a work visa under the Immigration Rules. We need to avoid creating further incentives for migrants to come here illegally, risking their lives in the process, instead of claiming asylum in the first safe country they reach.</p><p>It is also important to focus on providing support for those who are recognised as refugees, to help them to integrate and find employment, so that they can rebuild their lives here.</p>

answer text <p>Drug Rehabilitation Requirements (DRRs) include a condition for regular drug testing. However, these are not specific to a drug.</p><p> </p><p>There is good evidence from a Ministry of Justice (MOJ)-Public Health England (PHE) data share that community based drug and alcohol treatment can be effective in reducing reoffending. Recently published experimental statistics show that among those who committed an offence in the two years before undergoing drug or alcohol treatment, there was a 33% reduction in the number of offences they committed in the subsequent two years. Forty-four percent of offenders did not go on to reoffend in the subsequent two years following treatment.</p><p> </p><p>We are working with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and PHE to develop a protocol to support greater use of community sentences with treatment requirements (CSTRs) in courts, including DRRs.</p><p> </p><p>The CSTR protocol focuses on reducing reoffending by addressing the health needs of offenders that may be contributing to their offending behaviour. This is operating across five courts within England (as health is devolved in Wales). These sites are Milton Keynes, Northampton, Birmingham, Sefton and Plymouth.</p><p> </p><p>DHSC has led an evaluation of the implementation of the protocol across the five sites, looking at aspects of CSTRs that are working well and changes in the use of CSTRs over the evaluation period. The evaluation report will be published early next year.</p>
