Letter of correction from Mr. Byrne:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Dundee, East (Stewart Hosie) on 10 December 2007.

The correct answer should have been:

Mr. Byrne: Illegal entry action is initiated against those people who are detected having entered or attempted to enter the country clandestinely or by means of deception, either verbal or documentary. The figures in the table represent illegal entrants detected from 1 January 2007 to 30 November 2007. These figures relate predominantly to clandestine entrants but may also include other categories of illegal entry. Figures may include in-country enforcement cases located in the specific areas.
