To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 23 May 2011, Official Report, columns 414-15W, on deportation: children, how many of the 230 family groups removed from the UK between 1 May 2010 and 30 April 2011 departed voluntarily.

Since my original response of 23 May 2011, Hansard, columns 414-15W, the figures have been refreshed and now show that there were 236 family groups removed from the UK between 1 May 2010 and 30 April 2011. Of these, 144 departed voluntarily.

The information provided cannot be taken from or compared to published National Statistics as these report on children rather than family groups. Published National Statistics do not separately identify all enforced removals and all voluntary departures.

All figures quoted are internal management information only and are subject to change. This information has not been quality assured under National Statistics protocols.
