Redacted sections of a report into the running of UK borders have been hidden from the public because it would jeopardise national security, the Home Office has said.
In accordance with the UK Borders Act 2007 the Home Secretary, in consultation with the independent chief inspector, is required to redact any material which, if published, would be prejudicial to the interests of national security.
These take the form of visible redactions in the report laid before Parliament.
The report proved illegal immigrants were prevented from entering the UK by the “excellent working relationships” between the UK, French and Belgian authorities, the Home Office added.
