Sir: In her article "Illegal immigration: where are the facts?" (19 July), Heather Mills is right to conclude that the Home Secretary, Michael Howard, is proposing headline-grabbing "solutions" for problems he is unable to prove exist. Unfortunately, this approach - in which filling the front pages of some newspapers with alarmist stories and dubious figures is more important then the facts - is wholly characteristic of Home Office policy-making on immigration and asylum issues, with unfortunate results for taxpayers.
