Ex-Tory Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: ‘in addition to the original sin, it is a disgrace the Home Office is not willing to release figures on something which is of such public importance. They must tell the public exactly what they have done to bring these dangerous criminals under control and be fully open about the extent of this problem.\’
The Home Office, which has jurisdiction over the UK Border Agency, blamed the Ministry of Justice which is in charge of running Britain\’s prisons. David Wood, of the UK Border Agency, said it deported 5,235 foreign nationals last year and that it has made \’considerable improvements\’ to the system. He said: \’We receive around 500 referrals per month and work closely with other agencies to ensure we deal with all foreign national prisoners, including cases where the offender will be released on sentencing directly from court, those serving short sentences and remand prisoners.\’
