According to the Guardian Lin Homer, chief executive of the UKBA, has told MPs that more than one in four jobs (which amounts to 5000) at the agency will be lost over the next four years. The agency’s support services, which account for about 10% of its budget, are facing cuts of about 35%, while frontline services will face cuts of 20%.
