Illegal Immigrants: Employment

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the name and address is of each business the UK Border Agency has fined for hiring illegal immigrants in the last 24 months. (319617)

Since the introduction of civil penalties which came into effect for those employed on, or after 29 February 2008, a total of 3,709 notices of liability for a civil penalty to the period 31 January 2010, have been issued to employers hiring illegal workers. These data are derived from local management information and are therefore provisional and subject to change. It is not practical to list the names and addresses of all those employers but details of employers where the appeal process against service of a notice of liability for a civil penalty has been fully exhausted in the last quarter can be found on the UK Border Agency website at the following link:

The information is listed by region and includes the name of the business, the town or city where it is located, the postcode of the business, the number of illegal workers found to be working illegally and the amount of the civil penalty imposed.
