A copy of the latest release, ‘Immigration <br />Statistics September – December 2013' is available from the Library of the <br />House and from: <br />https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/home-office/series/immigration-stati<br />stics-quarterly-release.<br /><br />Within the table be_01_q , data relating to adult dependent relatives of a <br />British Citizen in the UK or a settled person in the UK are included in the <br />category ‘Family: Other (for immediate settlement)' but cannot be identified <br />separately.<br /><br />The Home Office is reviewing the collection of data relating to adult dependent <br />relative settlement visas. Data are being developed and, subject to resolving <br />any data quality/recording issues, it is planned to begin publishing data <br />specifically relating to adult dependent relative settlement visas later this <br />year.<br /><br />A manual review of the available management information to identify adult <br />dependent relative applications granted in the period from 1 November 2012 to <br />30 September 2013 indicates that 34 settlement visas were issued in that period <br />to an adult dependent relative under Appendix FM to the Immigration Rules. This <br />information is provisional and subject to change. Corresponding information on <br />applications is not available.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Command of the National <br />Crime Agency (NCA) is the UK's national law enforcement agency committed to <br />tackling the sexual abuse of children in both the online and offline <br />environments - with the principal aim of identifying, locating and safeguarding <br />children and young people from harm. <br /><br />Government funding for the CEOP Command of the NCA was £6.381million in <br />2012/13. The work of the CEOP Command in tackling the proliferation of indecent images of <br />children is of utmost importance and that is why we have protected its budget. <br /><br />In addition, every officer in the NCA, which has over 4000 people, has a legal <br />duty to safeguard children and promote child welfare. The NCA's UK and global <br />reach is extensive, with officers stationed in over 40 countries overseas to <br />ensure our international partners are working alongside us to tackle the abuse <br />of children. <br /><br />Police forces also investigate online child abuse, safeguard the victims and <br />prosecute the perpetrators. The resources allocated to this work in each force <br />is a matter for the Chief Constable and their Police and Crime Commissioner.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>[holding answer 24 March 2014]</p><p>HM Government has not made any estimate of the number of illegal migrants currently employed in the UK. Given the clandestine nature of illegal migrants, any estimation is, by definition, extremely difficult and prone to considerable uncertainty.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Government takes illegal immigration very seriously and is focusing on measures to ensure that illegal migrants cannot live, work or abuse benefits and services in the UK. The Immigration Bill will prevent illegal migrants from accessing and abusing public services. It will also strengthen our existing arrangements to prevent illegal working, by making it easier to enforce penalties on employers found to be employing illegal workers; reform the removals and appeals system, making it simpler to remove those with no right to be in the UK; and end the abuse of Article 8 of the ECHR - the right to respect for private and family life. Parallel changes to secondary legislation will also double the maximum penalty for employing an illegal worker and strengthen the scheme as a whole, including by simplifying the checks employers must perform.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
