Liberal Democratic Party: Exit checks biggest hole in student visa system says Huhne

Press Release   •   Feb 08, 2010 11:19 GMT

“We need to restore immediate control of our borders," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary.

Commenting on today’s announcement by Alan Johnson on the student visa system, Chris Huhne said:

“The biggest hole in the student visa system is caused by the Tory and Labour abolition of exit checks, which means we do not know if someone has left once their visa runs out.

“We need to restore immediate control of our borders.”
