Entry Clearances

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 3 December 2009, Official Report, columns 888-9W, on entry clearances, whether the net value of revenue accrued in respect of applications is retained by the UK Border Agency. (306370)

All income from entry clearance is retained by the UK Border Agency. The income received does not cover the full cost of processing this type of application and therefore no net revenue accrues to the Agency.
