Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration John Vine says he surprised the use of e-Borders information to "export the border" is not happening.
Despite being in development for over a decade, and costing over half a billion pounds, the e-borders programme has yet to deliver many of the anticipated benefits originally set out in 2007. I was surprised that the use of e-Borders information to "export the border" by preventing the arrival of a passenger because they had either been deported or excluded from the UK previously, was not happening.
