I am delighted that the hon. Gentleman has given way but I must point out to him—perhaps he was concentrating on other matters when I spoke—that I did not mention the north-east at all. The point that I was making was that the larger the airport becomes, the harder it is for personal relationships to develop between the different people responsible for policing and, therefore, the less effective that policing is likely to be—hence the need for a border security force. It certainly was not a comment on the abilities of anybody involved in policing in any particular airport.
