In the first nine months of this year there were 21,520 applications for asylum, according to figures obtained from the home office by the Daily Mail (p35).

They show a drop of almost 10,000 on last year's figure.

In the last three months - normally the highest for claimants according to the paper - there was a marked decrease in the number of applicants.

Figures fell in July from 3,414 last year to 2,515 in August from 3,889 to 2,140, and in September from 4,020 to 2,005.
