IS96 reporting conditions and limitations...

Wayne Pearsall made this Freedom of Information request to UK Border Agency

The request was partially successful.

From: Wayne Pearsall

29 January 2013

Dear UK Border Agency,

I am enquiring as to the number of immigrants currently under
reporting conditions on an IS96 document.

Please identify the following statistical information - which is
kept on computer records for each individual...

Please identify how many people are currently under such
restrictions.

what precentage of people have to report and how often:
IE: 10% weekly, 10% bi-monthly, 13% monthly, 20% bi-monthly ETC

What precentage of people are allowed to engage in work / business
activities.

Also, what financial help is available to persons on such
restrictions as not to engage in work (and therefore support
themselves) - how are such people supposed to feed / cloth / home
themselves (and their dependants).

also, How is travel funded by the people on an IS96 reporting
obligation? - how many "immigrants" claim funds to aid them in
reporting.

Please explain what the criteria for claiming such funds is.
(such as with Job Seekers allowance, you must be looking for work,
not work more than 16 hours, etc etc etc - this is publically
available knowledge).

Yours faithfully,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Freedom Of Information Team ( IND ),

First of all, I am rather disapointed that the response to my FOI
was infact late.

secondly, I do not feel that the response provided was a very fair
response to those on an IS96 reporting condition.

particularly this quote:
-----------
Some people given Temporary Admission will be neither an asylum
seeker or failed asylum seeker. Those who have been granted
Temporary Admission have no immigration status, are liable to
removal and can generally avoid a breach of their rights by
returning home. It is the claimants’ responsibility to return home
and not the Secretary of State’s responsibility to support those
who choose to remain in the UK illegally.
-----------

Does this mean that an IS96 reporting condition is only applicable
to a person who is in the UK Illegally?

If this is the case, then my wife who is on an IS96 reporting
condition therefore does not have to comply with the restrictions
placed upon her.

Case C34/09 of the ECJ ruled that a parent of an EU citizen is
legally entitled to live and work in the memberstate of which the
EU citizen is a citizen of.

IE: the non eea national parent of a british child which is
dependant upon them is allowed to live and work in britain.

As you have made it clear that only illegal enterants ETC are
required to report it seems rather clear to myself that therefore
my wife does not need to comply with the reporting restrictions
placed upon her!

I also refer specifically to this section also:
---
It is the claimants’ responsibility to return home
---

The problem with this, is it seems rather discriminative to a
person to tell them to basically go home. Please explain why the
author of the reply to this FOI is in such a public presence?

Please accept this message as a request for both an internal review
of the answer - requesting a better response...

as well as a request for this to be treated as a complaint on the
grounds that an assumption has been made to provide the answer - a
rather discriminative assumption.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear FOI Requests,

in response to your reply. a day late is still late.

the law states MAXIMUM of 20 working days. UKBA operate over the
weekend, so this also extends your timescale to 28 working days.

The law also states a response should be provided as soon as
possible and no later than 20 working days. It is clear that ukba
hold the response until the last day possible to reply in this
case.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall
