WINDRUSH affair - intelligence failure?

We're waiting for L Alvarez to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Home Office,

The Home Office's Immigration Department has a public policy position that it is 'intelligence-led'.

1. Does the Immigration Department have an Intelligence Section? If so:

2. Did it know that WINDRUSH victim British Citizens were being denied, detained, deported and destitute overseas because of a derelict immigration policy (National Audit Office independent finding refers)? If not, why not? Who is the Director responsible for this intelligence failure?

3. Or did it not know that WINDRUSH victim British Citizens were being denied, detained, deported and destitute overseas because of a derelict immigration policy (National Audit Office independent finding refers)? If it did know, who is the Director responsible for this intelligence failure?

4. Either way, there has been an obvious and high impact intelligence failure. It is a clear matter of public interest to know have there been any consequent misconduct proceedings? And if so, what did they find?

Yours faithfully,

L Alvarez

Dear FOI Requests,

The statutory FoIA backstop for full reply passed some 13 days ago. Please can you conduct internal review and let me know the reason for the delay? Please can you also let me know when to expect a full reply?

Yours sincerely,

L Alvarez

Dear FOI Requests,

The Information Commissioner's 'long stop' expired a fortnight ago at which point internal review was requested. Another fortnight has passed without either acknowledgement or reply.

Please can you confirm:
a) That internal review is happening. And
b) When will the Home Office reply?

Yours sincerely,

L Alvarez
