Parliamentary and Health Services Ombudsman, Ann Abraham, published her report into the immigration system this week entitled “Fast and Fair?”
Responding to the report Lin Homer, Chief Executive of the UK Border Agency said:
‘We take the Ombudsman’s recommendations seriously and welcome the assessment that our complaints systems are improving.
The UK Border Agency is continuing to make progress in dealing with the legacy backlog of older asylum cases and has already concluded more than 235,000 cases. I am confident we are on course to conclude these cases by the summer of 2011.’ Source: UK Border Agency.
