Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many personnel will be required for case-by-case investigation of e-borders alerts when the system goes nationwide; and what will be the cost of undertaking those checks. [HL3472]

e-Borders alerts will be an integral part of agencies’ normal border activities including managing immigration, tackling smuggling and the detection and arrest of offenders. It is not possible to directly attribute the number of personnel required to investigate e-Borders alerts at the border or the cost of undertaking those checks.
