The Home Affairs Committee concluded that the Government delays, uncertainty and under-resourcing leave the Borders and Immigration System unprepared for Brexit. The report which was published on 14th February 2018 by the Home Affairs Committee criticised the delay to the Immigration White paper and warns of serious problems for Immigration Service delivery and Border Security, as a result of lack of decisions, proper planning or sufficient resources. It raises serious questions about the Home Office’s ability to implement the system and the staffing required to deliver the proposed Brexit changes. The Committee heard the evidence of Danielle Cohen of Danielle Cohen Immigration Solicitors on 10th October 2017.
