Government won’t reveal number of "clandestine migrants" have entered Port of Tilbury to Jackie Doyle Price

THURROCK MP, Jackie Doyle-Price rose on the floor of the House of Commons to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many clandestine migrants have been identified at (a) the UK’s seaport and (b) the Port of Tilbury in each year since 2000.

The minister, James Brokenshire replied: "The following detections of clandestine migrants have been made across all UK sea ports since 2011 (to obtain data pre-2011 would be at disproportionate cost): 692 detections in 2011, 568 in 2012 and 678 in 2013.

"In order to ensure the integrity and security of the UK border, Her Majesty’s Government does not comment on port specific statistics".
