With reference to the detention data tables immigration Statistics April June 2011.

Of the 7,345 individuals who were granted temporary admission or release on leaving detention in 2010, 1,544 individuals have subsequently been removed from the UK, and 2,316 individuals have subsequently been granted leave to remain in the UK.

The remaining individuals are either in the process of being removed or awaiting a final decision on their cases. Some may have appealed against earlier decisions or submitted new applications.

Of those awaiting removal, some will have been returned to immigration detention. Where detention is not possible—or example if there are barriers to removal such as difficulties in obtaining travel documents—individuals must report regularly to the UK Border Agency.

Furthermore, some may have left the country voluntarily without informing the UK Border Agency.

All figures quoted are management information which has been subject to internal quality checks.
