Illegal Immigrants

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many raids the UK Border Agency has conducted of hereditaments within the Government Secure Zone within the last 24 months; in what locations; how many illegal immigrants have been identified; and at what premises. (324204)

The UK Border Agency is not able to identify which properties within the Government Secure Zone are recognised as “hereditaments” as this is outside the scope of the UK Border Agency's business remit.

However the number of enforcement visits carried out in the London SW1 postcode area in the last 24 months was 62. The number of immigration offenders encountered on these enforcement visits was 49. The UK Border Agency does not divulge personal names or addresses for reasons of confidentiality.

These figures do not constitute part of National Statistics as they are based on internal management information. The information has not been quality assured under National Statistics protocols and should be treated as provisional and subject to change.
