Conclusions and recommendations |
are concerned that the current process for licensing and employing
security workers gives rise to a situation in which illegal immigrants
are gaining employment in the security industry. In our opinion,
the licence application form would be an expedient means of ensuring
consideration of the immigration status of security industry workers.
We therefore welcome the announcement from the Home Secretary
that she is encouraging the Security Industry Authority to amend
its licence application form to include a declaration from applicants
that they have the right to work in the UK. (Paragraph 21)
2. We recommend the
Home Secretary provides us with further updates on the licensing
of private security workers in March 2008 and again in June 2008.
