More holes in UKBA

KEITH Vaz called for senior Home Office civil servants to be denied bonuses this year after a report from the select committee he chairs revealed failings at the UK Border Agency (UKBA).

The report’s findings were compounded, however, by this little snippet of information that popped out surreptitiously this morning.

Between May 1 and October 31 2010 176 failed asylum seekers did a runner after being served with removal directions.

By December 2010 only 42 had been found and detained. UKBA is currently “in contact” with an additional 15 (whatever that means), and a further two were removed from the UK without being served removal directions.

That leaves 122 who are in the UK illegally. Another point for Vaz’s committee to look into.
