Campaigners have accused UK Home Office of a lack of decency” after it emerged that dozens of people deported to Commonwealth countries have not been contacted by the Windrush task force.
Ministers said no specific attempt had been made to approach 49 people deported to Ghana and Nigeria in 2017.
The Home Office says it is up to Commonwealth citizens to seek information about their status.
MPs said it showed the government had learned nothing from the scandal.
The Windrush scandal was uncovered earlier this year, after many people from Commonwealth countries who had legally lived in Britain for decades were wrongly classed as illegal immigrants and deported.
