Commenting, Alp Mehmet, Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:
The PM’s statement is a welcome, if belated, commitment to tackling the problem of illegal immigration. Had the resources and effort promised today come when small boats first appeared on our shores, we would not be facing the chaos and mountain of illegality that we now do. However, it is only a start. Fine words in Parliament are all very well but the voters will judge the PM and his party on results and whether they have the political will and courage to keep to their promises and not cave at the first sound of gunfire.
