  • 21:19 Story (17 links): Border controls 'lax since 2007'

    PoliticsHome Border controls 'lax since 2007' Story View links

    Keith Vaz criticised UKBA for lapses in security as "the public has to have confidence in the security of our borders and that is the basis of immigration policy" but warned it was important not to get party political about the issue.

    Bus border checks have been lax since 2007, allowing hundreds of thousands of coach passengers to travel easily into the UK. In another blow for the Home Office, a relaxation quietly introduced under the Labour to ease queues at Dover in 2007 was only halted 10 days ago when senior border officials were suspended, the Sunday Telegraph said.

    Conservative MP Charlie Elphicke condemned the relaxation of security as "a very worrying thing if business interest outweighs the interests of the security of our nation and the security of our borders."
