Military police 'to stop border delays'  British Forces News | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

It is reported that Military Police officers and civil servants could be drafted in to man immigration desks to avoid delays during a one-day strike by border guards.

 

The Daily Telegraph says the Home Office is drawing up contingency plans as hundreds of thousands of passengers face disruption at airports and ports on May 10.

 

Immigration Minister Damian Green has criticised the strike, which is a dispute over pensions, while unions warns queues and delays would increase if drafted-in staff are used.
