The UK Borders Agency's e-Borders system currently tracks up to half of all passengers coming into and leaving the country, according to immigration minister, Phil Woolas.
The minister's was responding to a parliamentary question posed by Theresa Villiers, MP for Chipping Barnet and shadow secretary of state for transport. 'We estimate that e-Borders is currently tracking 45% to 50% of all passenger movements into and out of the UK, which equates to approximately 100m passengers annually,' Woolas said.
