To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether she plans to extend the 20-working day deadline for asylum seekers to complete the streamlined asylum processing; and what criteria will be used to determine whether an applicant will receive a 10-day extension.
Claimants who receive an Asylum Questionnaire will have 20 working days to return this. If the questionnaire is not returned within the timeframe, claimants will automatically receive a reminder via post, email and phone (where they have made their contact details available to the Home Office), and a further 10 working days to complete the questionnaire. In addition, extension requests to complete the questionnaire can be submitted and all relevant circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
For more information, please see the guidance at: Streamlined asylum processing - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
