The UK Border Agency's future capital funding for the period 2010-15 has not yet been allocated following the comprehensive spending review announced on 20th October 2010.

Our priorities remain to secure the border and control migration. We are committed to programmes such as e-Borders and the Immigration Case Working system that will help to reduce the threat of terrorism, crime and immigration abuse and replace costly and outmoded paper work, respectively.

These programmes will help improve our productivity and efficiency and will mean that we can target our resources on those people likely to cause most harm to the UK.
