Home Affairs

Asked whether the Prime Minister was confident that the Government would bring down levels of migration, the PMS explained that Government had taken a number of measures to tighten up the system and would continue to do that. He pointed out that fewer people were leaving the UK and that was driving the figures. He stated that clearly the process takes time but said Government was implementing changes.

Asked about the wisdom of continuing a risk-based approach to border control, the PMS said that the basic principal under plans was that a smarter and more targeted approach was needed.

Put that TPIMs were a mess’, the PMS denied that was the case and explained that a small number of people on control orders needed to be transferred onto the new system. He said that given the practicalities of court time it was sensible for the time to do this to be extended slightly.
