To ask Her Majesty's Government how many Home Office officials received a bonus payment for securing immigration removals in the period 2012 to 2017.

To collate and supply the infomation requested would exceed the disproportionate cost threshold.

The nearest approximation the number of bonuses and how those work, for staff working in Immigration Enforcement and its predecessor UK Border Agency was set out in a letter dated 25 June 2018 from the Home Office Permanent Secretary to Rt Hon Yvette Cooper MP. A copy of that letter was deposited in the Library, and I am arranging for Lord Bassam of Brighton to receive a copy.
