The Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration, John Vine CBE QPM, has today published his 2012-13 Inspection Plan. The Plan highlights the inspections he will carry out in order to provide assurance to public and Parliament on the operation of border control and immigration in the United Kingdom.
Mr Vine said:
"It gives me great pleasure to present my inspection plan for assessing the efficiency and effectiveness of the UK Border Agency and the Border Force in 2012-13.
"In finalising my plan for this coming year, I wanted to take stock of the inspections I have carried out to date and the most relevant issues of concern to the public and Parliament. With this in mind, I will be revising my inspections to achieve a greater focus on border security, the assessment of casework operations in the UK and a detailed focus on particular cross-cutting themes.
"The work of the UK Border Agency and the Border Force is vital and it is also complex and wide-ranging. I expect to see the UK Border Agency and the Border Force improve over the course of this year and I will continue to make recommendations that I believe will help them to do so."
