Illegal Immigrants: Plymouth

Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether she has received reports on whether an illegal immigrant and alleged murderer is working in a care home in Plymouth. (199319)

[holding answer 21 April 2008]: In 2005 an intelligence assessment was carried out covering the south and south west of England. Its subject was illegal employment by foreign nationals. The assessment appeared in The Sunday Times on 30 March 2008 as a result of a leak.

Intelligence contained in the report suggested that a person who had previously worked at a care home in Plymouth was a Filipino national who had false references and may be wanted for murder in the Philippines.

Subsequent inquiries suggested that the person who had been employed at the care home was not the same person who was wanted for murder.
