On 12 March 2015 the Government laid regulations introducing a flat rate of asylum support for all asylum seekers of £36.95 per week, regardless of age. The Home Office later reversed these changes, stating it was the result of reflection. On 16 July the Government again laid these regulations representing a cut in support to children of £16.00 per week.

The regulations come into force on 10 August 2015.
