In today's Daily Telegraph it is reported that France will not let border guards in Calais use X-Rays to search for illegal immigrants in lorries unless they get written permission from the stowaways. France claims it violates European health and safety laws.

What is the world coming to ???

And I thought we were alone in Europe in doing such stupid things...

Not so stupid for the French..........they're exporting the problem.

This is so
Any country that suspect 'illegals' are departing is hardly going to stop them are they?
Though were there not cases reported here of Illegals being prevent from being deported because their papers were 'not in ordewr'?

What papers what order!

One haulage company are not now dealing with France because of this problem. The illegals climb inside the lorries when the drivers are asleep. The owner had to pay the £5000 fine when one of his drivers was found to have illegals in his lorry.
