The UK Borders Agency - the authority that has deported rough sleepers from Eastern Europe - is to be scrapped after home secretary Theresa May told MPs “its performance was not good enough”.
The UKBA was formed in 2008 as distinct from the Home Office, but Ms May said this had led to a “secretive and defensive culture”.
On March 25, MPS from the Home Affairs Committee published a report claiming that the UKBA had repeatedly supplied incorrect information about the size of backlog asylum cases, describing it as “not fit for purpose”.
Committee chairman and Labour MP Keith Vaz welcomed the home secretary’s decision to put the border agency “out of its misery”.
