Immigration Policy Enforcement

Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

10. To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what measures he is taking to enforce immigration policies. (141133)

What people want to see is the UK’s immigration system working fairly and effectively.

That is why we have:

Removed more failed asylum seekers and illegal migrants than ever before;

stopped 180,000 people from boarding aircraft to Britain through our airline liaison officers and

revamped the old IND turning it into the new Border and Immigration Agency, making it more open and more accountable

We want go further—that is why we are:

Recruiting more immigration officers and police officers;

introducing tougher powers for front line staff; and

introducing a migration management system which gives those who can contribute the most the best chance of entering this country.
