'Cuts already affecting Heathrow border control'

A PCS Union spokesman said:

The issues of the last few days has brought to the public's attention what we have said for a long time, that ministers can't cut staff and expect to run the same service - not just on passport controls at Heathrow, but right across UKBA.

Clearly, the cuts already made have had a major impact and further cuts planned every year until 2015 will make the situation even worse.
