Registered Traveller Programme

Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made on the European Union’s Registered Traveller Programme feasibility study; and if she will make a statement. (188649)

A Communication from the Commission was issued on 19 February. It invited the European Parliament and the Council to reflect on the future of the EU’s integrated border management strategy, including the feasibility of the Registered Traveller Programme. The Commission proposes to issue a further working document in due course. While the UK does not participate in this element of the Schengen Agreement, we will work with the Commission to explore to what extent we are able to develop synergies with the proposals.
