Chair's comments

Committee Chair Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP said:

"Brian Moore has been at the helm of the new Border Force for two months. In that time we have heard reports of continuing low staff morale and seen the effects of the problems at passport control.

As we heard last week from airport operators, airlines and Border Force staff unions, this cannot continue. We will be questioning Mr Moore on the action he has taken to resolve this situation.

We will also be asking him about longer-terms issues such as the 'Lille loophole' and the role of the forthcoming Border Policing Command in the National Crime Agency."
