I have a technical question for the Minister. Subsection (1) says:

“A court making a forfeiture order about property may order that the property be taken into the possession of the Secretary of State (and not of the police).”

I assume that that allows the property to be forfeited to immigration officers, but I should be grateful for clarification as to what the practical effect of that part of the clause would be.
