The Department does not hold any Equality Impact Assessments related to the setting of targets for removals of illegal migrants. This is because the Equalities Act 2010 does not require public authorities to carry out such assessments. http://researchbriefings.files.parliament.uk/documents/SN06591/SN06591.pdf.
