The UK Border Agency has published its response to Brodie Clark’s statement of 8 November.

Rob Whiteman, UK Border Agency chief executive said:

“Brodie Clark admitted to me on 2 November that on a number of occasions this year he authorised his staff to go further than Ministerial instruction. I therefore suspended him from his duties. In my opinion it was right for officials to have recommended the pilot so that we focus attention on higher risks to our border, but it is unacceptable that one of my senior officials went further than was approved.” Source: UK Border Agency.

Brodie Clark, who is suing the government for constructive dismissal,  is due to appear before the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, which has already grilled Home Secretary Theresa May, next week.

Earlier this week Brodie Clark dramatically resigned his post as head of the UK Border Force after being blamed for letting thousands of foreigners into the country without proper checks.

He had been publicly criticised and suspended by the Home Office following allegations that staff were told to scale down some identity checks at border control posts such as London Heathrow Airport.
