Home Office written question – answered on 9th July 2020.
Lord Roberts of Llandudno Liberal Democrat
To ask Her Majesty's Government for which languages there are interpreters available for asylum seekers’ interviews.
Baroness Williams of Trafford The Minister of State, Home Department
A definitive list of languages is not available as both demand for different languages and provision of interpreter services to meet the demand constantly change. Such services for asylum interviews are principally organised through the Home Office Interpreter Operation Unit. The Home Office also maintains ongoing arrangements with external providers in case demand cannot be fully met internally.
