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”. The Government has since reported that it is again considering these changes to asylum support. The introduction of a flat rate would represent a cut in support to children of £16.00 per week.
