The Home Office held an open competition to appoint a successor to Brian Moore as head of Border Force, but have not yet found the right candidate for this vital role.

Tony Smith, currently senior director for Border Force and UK Border Agency Olympic Programme, will take on the role on a temporary basis from 19 September 2012 until a permanent head is appointed. We expect to make an appointment by the end of the year.
