Immigration minister: 'We will find you and you will pay'

Immigration Minister and Conservative MP for Forest of Dean Mark Harper said the raids across the UK show the Government is "sending a clear message - we will find you and you will pay a heavy penalty".

Illegal working undercuts legitimate businesses and is often linked to exploitative behaviour such as tax evasion and harmful working conditions.

We will not allow the growth of a shadow economy for illegal migrants.
