The UK Border Agency annual accounts for 2010-11 can be viewed at:
A copy has also been placed in the House Library.
These accounts include the costs of Public Expense Removals, and also of the various voluntary removal schemes which the Agency operates. The gross costs to the Agency of removals shown in the Agency's accounting records between 2006 and 2011 are detailed in Table 1; these figures include the total programme costs of the voluntary return schemes including re-integration assistance, flights and running costs. The Agency also receives funding from the EU for its removals programme, and the amounts received and expected from this source are shown in Table 2, which will offset some of the gross costs.
EU Funds received for 2009-10 and 2010-11 remain subject to audit and possible amendment.
