Support for asylum seekers
Regina (AW, A and Y) v. Croydon London Borough Council and Another
Court of Appeal
“The duty to provide for an ablebodied destitute failed asylum-seeker, for whom the provision of support was necessary to avoid the breach of his or her rights under the European Convention on Human Rights, fell upon the Secretary of State for the Home Department whereas the duty to provide for an infirm destitute failed asylum-seeker in such circumstances rested upon the local authority.”
