asked Her Majesty's Government:
What are, for each carrier, the number of contraventions and penalties imposed for contravening the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, and the value of fines outstanding. [HL4088]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord Bassam of Brighton)
Sections 40–42 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, which enable the Secretary of State to demand charges of carriers in respect of the arrival of passengers without proper documents, have not yet commenced. The Immigration (Carriers' Liability) Act 1987 is still in force. Details of demands served under that Act were given in the Answer to the noble Lord on 18 October 2000 (Official Report, WA 91).
