The creation of the Immigration Enforcement Competent Authority (IECA) was an internal restructure within the Home Office and no public consultation occurred. A full assessment of the Public Sector Equality Duty was undertaken and in line with our ongoing duty, will be kept under review.

The change is part of a wider approach to ensure decision making is streamlined and funding for the IECA is being built into our plans for the next fiscal year.
