Coalition to stop funding legal help for refugees

THE Federal Opposition is promising to stop funding immigration advice for asylum seekers if it wins next week's election.

The Coalition is expected to unveil the final plank of its border protection policy today.

Currently, Australian taxpayers fund refugee claims and legal appeals.

The Coalition says while it would not stop people accessing the help, it would stop funding it.

The move is expected to save about $100 million over four years.
