HC Deb 18 February 1971 vol 811 c532W
80. Mr. Torney

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to deal with the increase in immigrant smuggling between France, Belgium and Great Britain and the bringing of dangerous drugs into the country by these illegal immigrants.

Mr. Sharples

My right hon. Friend is in close touch with the police who have recently reviewed their arrangements for preventing illegal immigration and have strengthened their links with continental police forces. The forthcoming immigration legislation will provide an opportunity for considering the adequacy of penalties for being concerned in illegal immigration.
