Figures prior to 2004-05 could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

From 2004-05, the budget for the criminal casework team (rounded to the nearest £100,000) is in the following table.

2004-05 2,200,000
2005-06 2,500,000
2006-07 10,600,000

The majority of this budget is allocated for staffing costs. The Director General of the Immigration and Nationality Directorate, Lin Homer, wrote to the Home Affairs Committee on the 9 October 2006 explaining that during 2006 there had been a five-fold increase in staffing levels within the criminal casework team. A copy of this letter is available in the House Library.
