The UK Border Agency provides regular updates to the Home Affairs Committee on the cases in its Case Assurance and Audit Committee. The latest update was sent to the Committee in May 2012.

The additional information you have requested about legacy asylum cases for each country of origin is not readily available or quality assured. However, the top 10 nationalities have been sourced from local management information; this is not a national statistic:

1. China

2. India

3. Pakistan

4. Afghanistan

5. Sri Lanka

6. Iraq

7. Nigeria

8. Turkey

9. Zimbabwe

10. Iran.

The Casework and Assurance Audit Unit will resolve these legacy cases as barriers are lifted.
