Theresa May Accused Of Cover-Up Over Immigration Report

After it became evident that parts of a report into British border controls were hidden The Home Office was accused of covering these up.

Home Secretary Theresa May on her own redacted 15 sections of the report between the UK and France. These include statements of staff and managers in Calais on the insufficient amount of money allotted on resources. There was also a section describing the ‘Lille loophole’, because of which there were UK-bound Eurostar passengers who did not go thorough immigration checks.

The partial censoring of the report is thought to have happened because of the desire of Mrs. May to hide her mistakes.

Chris Bryant, the shadow immigration minister, said:

“This cover-up and the failure at our borders provide yet more dents in this Government’s much-tarnished credibility.”

He added he could find no other proper reason why the report had to be redacted by the highly-respected independent inspector. If you are concerned about employing immigrants from other countries, check our employment document templates

The opinion of UKIP leader Nigel Farage is that Home Office should in no way censor reports considering the operations of border security. As this has already happened this means that there is something they were most probably trying to hide.

The parts of the report which remained uncensored showed that illegal immigrants at Calais were taken no photographs or fingerprints because there were not enough cells where to detain them.

Another thing revealed by this report was that the Border Force, stationed at ports and airports, do not hand out the maximum fines to drivers and firms transporting illegal immigrants.
