star this property answer text <p>Keeping the UK’s border secure is our priority. The decisions to expand ePassport gate eligibility and remove the requirement to complete a landing card were taken after careful consideration and in consultation with security partners across Government.</p><p>Landing cards were primarily used to collect statistics and not used for routine security checks. The Government remains reassured, on the basis of direct expert engagement, that this change will not impact on border security. The additional nationalities that can now benefit from use of the ePassport gates were identified as suitable based on a variety of factors, including immigration abuse, security, cooperation on border matters and prosperity.</p><p>Analysis has shown that allowing these additional nationalities to use the ePassport gates provides them with more efficient entry into the UK, whilst not significantly increasing waiting times for existing ePassport gate users. The change will also significantly improve manned queue times, at certain ports and at certain times for other passengers.</p><p>Both changes are being closely monitored to ensure that we understand and can adapt to any impact they may have, including on queue times.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government has introduced a number of important reforms since 2010 to help make stop and search more targeted and intelligence-led. Stop and search is now more effective - the arrest rate is at a historic high (17%) and 30% of all stops lead to a positive outcome (arrest, summons / charged by post, Caution, Khat or Cannabis Warning, Penalty Notice for Disorder or community resolution).</p><p><br>Stop and search is a vital policing tool when used correctly and officers have the Government's full support to use these powers in a way that is fair, lawful and effective.</p><p><br>That is why the Government announced changes to make it easier for officers in seven force areas particularly affected by serious violence to use Section 60 “no suspicion” time-limited stop and search powers in anticipation of serious violence.</p><p><br>The Metropolitan Police substantially increased their use of stop and search by 30% in 2018/19 (according to their own figures) and believe this has helped reduce homicides in London by 25%.</p>
