To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department

(1) what percentage of UK passenger movements she expects will utilise passenger name record data in 2013;

(2) when her Department expects to complete the risk assessment for the routes which will capture other passenger information (OPI); and what plans she has to announce which routes will utilise OPI.

The e-Borders Programme will check and screen against watch lists 60 per cent., of all passenger and crew movements in and out of the UK by December 2009, 95 per cent., by December 2010 and 100 per cent., by 2014.

We do not intend to publish details of those routes for which Passenger Name Record data will be captured as this is operationally sensitive.
