Border Agency still failing on basics say MPs

The UK Border Agency is still failing in its "basic functions" in spite of efforts to overhaul it, MPs have said.

The home affairs committee said UKBA had provided "inconsistent" information about immigration and asylum cases dating back to 2006 and this backlog would take four more years to clear.

It also said it was "deeply concerned" about the number of foreign prisoners living in the UK awaiting deportation.

This report by Tom Symonds features Labour MP Keith Vaz, who chairs the committee.
