holding answer 14 June 2012

Bonus payments made in 2011-12 were awarded for performance in the 2010-11 performance year when UK Border Force was part of the UK Border Agency. This response therefore provides overall figures for the UK Border Agency only.

5,918 employees received a one-off bonus payment in 2011-12 and the total (aggregate) cost of one-off bonus payments to this group was £3,330,099.

The question has been fully answered but it is not a particularly helpful question. What it doesn't show is the huge difference in amounts paid to senior civil servants compared to workers at the lower end who actually perform the key functions of UKBA.
