Dear Home Office,
The Independent Chief Inspector's report of February 2020 noted that, 'towards the end of 2017', the Home Office found that a 'small number' of failed right to abode applicants had been automatically referred for consideration of enforcement action, despite the individual having been in the UK for a considerable number of years (see https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk... at p.5-6).
In its response to the report, the Home Office confirmed that ‘[a]ll decision [sic] that were ‘pulled’ into the Migration Refusal Pool have been carefully reviewed' (see https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...).
Please provide the following information:
(1) How many cases were automatically referred for consideration for enforcement action as a result?
(2) Please provide any documents describing or summarising the Home Office's review of these cases, as described in its response to the Independent Chief Inspector's report.
