The Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration, David Bolt, has announced that as part of his inspection of the UK’s asylum system, he is calling for evidence on the Home Office’s use of interpreters in the asylum process.

The Chief Inspector says:

I am inviting bodies with relevant knowledge and expertise, including NGOs, academics, think tanks, faith groups and representative bodies, to write to me by 13 June 2019 with their supporting evidence or case studies they are able to share.

I would also like to receive evidence from individuals, including those who have first-hand experience of the asylum process and have used interpreters during it.

Please note that my remit does not extend to investigating or making decisions about individual cases. This remains a Home Office responsibility.

Please note that submissions may be cited in the final report.

If you want to submit evidence about the use of interpreters, you can send it by email to chiefinspector@icibi.gov.uk
