UK Border Agency

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 13 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the reasons are for the delay by the UK Border Agency in determining the case of a constituent of the hon. Member for Thurrock, reference N11 0518-CRTL5 included in the Agency’s backlog of older cases; and how many other cases are to be determined by the Agency prior to this case. (305800)

[holding answer 10 December 2009]: The UK Border Agency wrote to my hon. Friend in relation to his constituent’s case on 6 January 2010. With regards to case conclusion timeframes, the Case Resolution Directorate (CRD) will give priority to cases that may pose a risk to the public, those that can be easily removed or given status and those receiving support at the taxpayer’s expense. I can also confirm that the CRD is fully committed to considering all unresolved cases by summer 2011 and is on track to do so.
