Question

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people who absconded from ports of entry after being stopped by Border Force officers were subsequently recovered in each year since 2010.

Answer (Brandon Lewis)

Due to the way in which absconder data is recorded, it is not currently feasible to make an informed estimate of the number of people who have absconded from ports of entry after being stopped by Border Force, or who were subsequently recovered.

To establish this information would incur disproportionate cost.
