asked Her Majesty's Government:
On what date the Home Office's Legacy Directorate started to process cases; how many have been decided to the latest date for which figures are available; of these, how many families have been identified as coming within the scope of DP5/96, referred to in paragraph 36.7.1 of the Operational Enforcement Manual; how many of those families have been deported; and how many have been given leave to remain.
Work started on selected legacy cases in November 2006 and the Case Resolution Directorate was created on
By the end of November 2007, 52,000 cases had been concluded. We do not hold information in regard to the identification of families falling within DP5/96 nor information on those families who have been deported or given leave to remain as this would involve checking through individual case records at a disproportionate cost.
