To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many residential raids for immigration purposes were carried out between midnight and 8 am in the last 12 months; in how many of those cases children were expected to be present; and in how many of those cases one or more parent or guardian was removed.
The number of residential visits for the period
Residential visits data relates to the number of addresses targeted not the number of individuals expected at these visits. Number of residential visits is where the time of the visit is recorded as being between 0.00 and 08.00. A child is defined as anyone under 18 at the time of the visit. Data on the number of parent or guardian of the children expected to be present that were subsequently removed cannot be obtained without incurring disproportionate costs.
