Illegal Immigrants

Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department for what reasons the publication of his Department’s report on Understanding the market for facilitated illegal entry in the UK has been delayed; and when he intends to publish it. (247896)

[holding answer 20 January 2009]: The normal process for publishing research is that such reports must undergo a rigorous quality assurance process including external peer review and only research that meets our high quality standards is published by the Department. Once this process has been completed in this case, we expect to be able to publish the report in summer 2009.
