Shadow Immigration Minister Chris Bryant has warned that Nick Clegg's proposal to charge some visitors to the UK a security bond to ensure they leave again is potentially unfair.
He said it could discriminate against people who genuinely want to visit for a short period but are too poor to pay the deposit, while "unscrupulous people" who can afford it may be willing to "fork out their one or two thousand pounds" in order to circumvent the system.
