|Destroy travel documents and face jail warns Blair|
|News from UK Home Office, 2004 February 14|
People who deliberately destroy or discard travel documents in an attempt to stay in the UK, or who don't co-operate with re-documentation during the removal process, could face up to two years in prison, the Prime Minister said today.
Mr Blair said significant progress had been made in bringing asylum applications back down to 1997 levels. He added that increasing the speed and efficiency of the asylum process provided a platform to deliver the next phase in asylum reform which will include an increase in removals and savings in support costs.
