Holyrood Parliamentary Motion criticises UKBA for failure to engage with MSPs

In April 2012, a group of MSPs submitted a motion in the Scottish Parliament asking

“that the Parliament condemns what it considers to be the continued refusal of the UK Border Agency (UKBA) to engage with members who are representing their constituents; believes this to be an affront to democracy in Scotland; understands that the UKBA considers that it is “by far, the biggest recipient of constituency case correspondence in Government”, and believes that the level of casework undertaken by the UKBA is a direct result of the failed policies of the UK Government.”

The motion (S4M-02640) was brought by Kevin Stewart MSP (SNP), Aberdeen Central and supported by:

Annabelle Ewing, Kenneth Gibson, Rob Gibson, Paul Wheelhouse, Bill Kidd, Adam Ingram, Christina McKelvie, John Mason, Stuart McMillan, George Adam, Joan McAlpine, Margaret Burgess, Humza Yousaf, Sandra White, Dennis Robertson, Gil Paterson, Richard Lyle, David Torrance, Mike MacKenzie, Willie Coffey, Fiona McLeod, Dave Thompson, John Finnie, Colin Beattie, Gordon MacDonald, Jean Urquhart, Jamie Hepburn, Maureen Watt, Roderick Campbell, Jim Eadie, Mark McDonald, Aileen McLeod, Stewart Maxwell, Linda Fabiani, Clare Adamson.
