The below Parliamentary question was asked by Nicholas Soames on 2014-06-25.
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the cost to the Exchequer of the asylum and immigration system once fee income has been deducted has been in each of the last seven years.
Because of several restructures over the past seven years this information is
not available in line with the question posed. Published accounts for the
former UK Border Agency break down income and expenditure information since
2009 and further information is available in the Home Office Report and
Accounts for 2013-14.
