Meeting the Home Affairs Select Committee

A meeting took place at the Corn Exchange in Bedford on the evening of 2nd February to canvass views from a mixed selection of the local population on the current immigration situation. It was led by Rt Hon Yvette Cooper MP and included several members of the Select Committee. In attendance, there were about 70 people including a good number of YWBefrienders and members of BRASS. The round table discussions focused on how Bedford has successfully managed community cohesion, as well as discussions on the asylum process. Yarl’s Wood Befrienders were vocal in their condemnation of the immigration process at the present time.
