Letter: Border control.

Byline: Adam Cain

THE recently-released government figures which show that a record number of people have been granted British citizenship must go hand in hand with a real effort to integrate immigrants into our society, which sadly cannot be the case when ministers are cutting English courses.

There has been a drop in the number of failed asylum seekers deported, and this clearly shows the lamentably slow progress the Government is making in clearing the backlog of asylum applications, some of which have now been pending for years.

There continues however to be an overall lack of control of our borders because we no longer know whether people who are given temporary visas then leave again, thanks to the abolition of exit controls under the Tories.
