Letter: Spot checks at UK points of entry

Click to follow
Sir: According to Colin Brown's report (3 August) Britain is to be allowed to maintain passport checks on European Community nationals. If this means only that EC nationals, like United Kingdom nationals, will be required to satisfy immigration officers of their national status, then this is permissible. But if it means that non-British EC nationals are subject to interrogation by immigration officials from which UK nationals are exempt, this is surely in contravention of everything the EC has come to stand for.

Yours sincerely,
