Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many full-time equivalent staff are working on priority legacy cases. (141120)

[holding answer 7 June 2007]: In presenting a report on IND Reform to House on 25 July last year, the Home Secretary set out priorities for the asylum legacy programme. The director general of IND (now chief executive of BIA) then wrote to Home Affairs Committee on 19 February with update on legacy programme. This letter confirmed that a new directorate had been established to deal specifically with legacy cases and had been in operation since 1 November last year, with significant case working capability.

Further casework resources will progressively come on stream over coming months.
