The Home Affairs Committee completes quarterly inquiries into the work of the UK Border Agency and its latest report, which covers the second quarter of the year from April – June 2012, has looked at the number of backlog cases the agency is dealing with.
The troubled agency had 302,064 cases to investigate, trace or conclude by the end of June - more than 25,000 compared with the end of March, figures showed.
Most of the increase came from a rise of more than 24,000 missing migrants who have been refused permission to stay in the UK but whose whereabouts are unknown, referred to as the migration refusal pool.
