The second petition reads as follows:

The Petition of the people of Croydon,

Declares that the decision to make Croydon's Asylum Screening Unit the only such in-land unit could result in an additional 3,650 asylum seekers coming to Croydon each year, and that this will take a financial toll on local services.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to bring in a bill to ensure that the costs of implementing and running this policy are met from central funds.
