Failed right of abode applications

Jack Maxwell made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Home Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Home Office,

The Independent Chief Inspector's report of February 2020 noted that, in 2015, caseworkers had to complete a 'Harm Assessment Matrix' in respect of failed right of abode applications, to determine whether to refer them for enforcement action (see https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk... at p.10).

Please provide the following information:

(1) Do Home Office caseworkers still use any kind of harm or risk assessment matrix or tool to decide whether failed right of abode applications should be referred to Immigration Enforcement?

(2) Please provide a copy of the matrix or tool, including a full list of the factors or criteria applied in deciding whether to refer failed right of abode applications.

(3) Please provide any policies, guidance or standard operating procedures which deal with how such factors or criteria are selected and/or updated.

(4) Please provide copies of any equality impact assessments or data protection impact assessments completed in relation to the matrix or tool.

(5) Please provide copies of any policies, guidance or standard operating procedures which deal with the process of handling failed right of abode applications and the use of the matrix or tool.

In the event that you determine some of the information I have requested to be exempt from disclosure, please redact exempt information with black boxes, instead of snipping or excerpting, and please state which category of exemption you believe applies to the information.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in s.12 FOIA, please provide advice and assistance as to how I can refine my request, as required under s.16 FOIA.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Maxwell
