To ask Her Majesty's Government which local authorities have agreed to take part in the National Transfer Scheme for unaccompanied minors.
Answered on: 08 December 2017

We are grateful to the local authorities who continue to support to unaccompanied asylum seeking children, including those who have participated in the National Transfer Scheme (NTS).

Data on the NTS can be found at the following link:

The average waiting time to transfer unaccompanied children through the NTS varies according to the individual circumstances involved.

The number of unaccompanied children awaiting transfer through the scheme is fluid, depending on asylum intake, the number of transfer requests by local authorities and the number of transfers completed.
