Home Office Questions: Border Checks

This afternoon, I asked the Minister of State for Immigration if he had any concerns that 67,500 small planes and boats arrived at UK ports and airports without any checks by Border Force.

He was unable to give a solid answer to any action the Government were planning to take to protect our borders. These holes in our border security will allow the smuggling of illegal firearms and drugs.

I believe that the Government should be doing far more to close these gaps. If not I fear that organised crime will take advantage of the Governments failings.
