Border Checks Summer 2011 — Opposition Day Debate — 9 Nov 2011 at 16:29
The majority of MPs voted against requiring the immediate publication of information relating to the relaxation of UK border controls in Summer 2011.
The text of the rejected motion, put forward by the leader of the Labour opposition, Ed Miliband, read:
- That this House notes with concern the significant reduction in the level of security and border checks at UK ports of entry in the summer of 2011; and calls on the Government to publish immediately all relevant Home Office submissions to Ministers, together with the instructions from Home Office Ministers to the UK Border Agency (UKBA) regarding passport checks in the summer of 2011 and the relevant operational instructions from UKBA executives to staff and all data collected by the UKBA on the level of checks at each port of entry since July 2011.
