As Suella Braverman announces staff bonuses, the Home Office is accused of “gross incompetence

  • Yesterday afternoon, Home Office employees were accused of “gross negligence.”
  • It occurred when Suella Braverman disclosed that they will earn £2,500 in incentives.
  • Each of the 1,000 asylum caseworkers at the Home Office makes one decision every week.
  • There are now 122,000 cases awaiting an initial judgment.

Yesterday, Home Office employees were accused of “gross ineptitude” when it was revealed that each caseworker processes only one asylum claim each week.

In an effort to expedite the procedure, Suella Braverman disclosed that they will get incentives of up to £2,500.

The goal is to treble the rate at which claims are settled, according to the Home Secretary.

James Daly, a Conservative member of the Commons’ home affairs committee, told her that the fact that each of the Home Office’s 1,000 asylum caseworkers made just one decision each week was “gross ineptitude.”

There are now 122,000 cases awaiting an initial judgment.

Mrs Braverman admitted the Government has failed to protect our borders but blamed Channel migrants for ¿abusing the generosity of the British people¿ (image of migrants being helped by the RNLI last year)

Mrs. Braverman stated that steps were being taken to expedite the decision-making process in an effort to increase the number of claims each staff member processes every week to four.

In an effort to limit employee turnover, caseworkers will get a £1,500 retention bonus after one year and a £2,500 retention bonus after two years.

By March, the agency plans to employ 500 more caseworkers. She stated, “The asylum system has been under increasing strain for some years.” I concur that a problem exists. I do not believe it is appropriate to minimize the difficulty we face or to claim that it is simple to resolve.

Mrs. Braverman acknowledged that the government had failed to defend our borders, but faulted Channel migrants for exploiting the compassion of the British people.

Her admission is crucial since one of her department’s primary tasks is the protection of the British border.

Lee Anderson, a member of the Conservative Party, informed Mrs. Braverman that the department was housing tens of thousands of asylum seekers in hotels “because the Home Office has failed to manage our borders and is currently unfit for purpose.”

Mrs. Braverman stated, “Yes, we have failed to manage our borders, which is why the Prime Minister and I are so motivated to resolve this issue.”

When asked how the Home Office came to be keeping 4,000 migrants in substandard circumstances at the Manston processing station in Kent earlier this month, she responded, ‘I will tell you who is at responsible, it’s quite apparent who is at fault.

Individuals who flout our regulations, come here illegally, exploit vulnerable people, and try to exploit the goodwill of the British people are to blame.

The committee was informed that just 36 of the 12,000 Albanian migrants who arrived in Britain this year were deported immediately from Manston.

Mrs. Braverman acknowledged that regulations making it simpler to dismiss unsuccessful candidates might not be in place until the following year, which is later than promised.

Matthew Rycroft, permanent secretary of the Home Office, stated that it is too early to determine whether the Rwanda asylum program, which has already cost the public £140 million, would be cost-effective. The April-announced agreement is intended to return asylum-seeking migrants to Africa, but its legality is uncertain.
