Tories Pledge To Tighten Borders

THE Conservatives have today set out plans to tighten border security and protect the U.K.

They include the collection of data on goods before they arrive in order to stop smuggling, £20 million to improve security and extra border protection.

The Conservatives would also outlaw European ID cards and introduce a system of Electronic Travel Authorisation.

Priti Patel told TBG - “When people voted to leave in 2016 they were voting to take back control.”

“The consequence of EU law limiting our border capability is brought home to me every day.”

“It is the sad fact that drugs and guns reach our streets from Europe, fuelling violence and addiction.”

“I am committed to doing everything we can to secure the border and protect the U.K.”
