Border and Immigration Agency

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many applications for indefinite leave to remain have been lost by the Border and Immigration Agency's (a) Security Casework Unit, (b) War Crimes Unit, (c) Criminal Casework Directorate and (d) other casework units in each year since 1997. (198992)

The information requested is not available. It is not possible for the UK Border Agency to be aware of an application until it has been received and logged using the case information database. The onus is on the applicant to ensure that the agency receives their application. In the event that evidence has been provided that such an application has been received, the date of receipt will be taken into account when considering whether such an application has been made prior to the expiry of any other granted period of leave that the individual has held.
