Hodge: 'UK Border Agency has got to get a grip'

Chair of the Public Accounts Committee Margaret Hodge said on the findings of the report in relation to the points based system in immigration:

"...There's an unresolved tension between the government's desire to attract the best students to the UK both because of their talent and because of the money they bring and the government's desire to be seen as tough on immigration controls and those need to be sorted.

"...What our study found was that the UK Border Agency has got to get a grip and improve its action."
