HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c842W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the budget was for IND in 1990; and what the current budget is for IND. [62200]

Mr. Denham

The budget for the Immigration and Nationality Directorate IND for 2002–03 is 1,031 million. This figure is provisional and any proposed changes will be notified to Parliament though supplementary estimates. This figure is also on a resource basis and no comparable budget figures are available for 1990. However, IND expenditure for the two financial years covering 1990, on a cash basis, was as follows:

Actual expenditure £ million
1989–90 78.7
1990–91 90.9

A significant portion of the overall budget for 2002–03 relates to asylum support, which before 1999–2000 was assigned to the Departments of Health and Social Security not the Immigration and Nationality Directorate.
