I am extremely grateful for that intervention, but I now find the argument even more preposterous—Newcastle international airport is apparently not even in the north-east. That is absolutely unbelievable. The hon. Member for Monmouth cited the argument advanced on Second Reading by the hon. Member for Hexham (Mr. Atkinson) that Newcastle international airport often does not have immigration officers. He advanced that as an argument for new clause 4 and I am saying that that argument is intellectually weak.
