The UK will make “no compromises” on its border security, the Immigration Minister will say later today. In a speech to the Royal United Services Institute, Damian Green will also say the e-borders programme will be “genuinely secure, fluid and complete”.
Meanwhile a Conservative MP has hit out at plans to allow all European Union nations to access the UK's DNA bank. Dominic Raab told the Daily Mail the move could mean Britons "risk finding themselves mistakenly dragged into criminal investigations abroad".
Tory MP Dominic Raab has accused judges at the European Court of Human Rights of being inexperienced and unelected, and of acting beyond their powers.

Conservative MP Dominic Raab has been accused of trying to make it difficult for constituents to contact him by trying to remove his parliamentary email address from websites. Mr Raab claims he removed his address because lobby groups "swamp MPs with automated emails".
MPs have asked the Government to impose sanctions on Russian officials allegedly involved in the death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky.
Mr Magnitsky, who was killed after apparently uncovering corruption among senior Russian officials, was part of "a noble Russian tradition of dissidents", according to Conservative MP Dominic Raab - who suggested asset freezes and travel bans for those linked to the killing.
His motion was unopposed, and supported by three former Foreign Secretaries; Jack Straw, David Miliband and Sir Malcolm Rifkind.
Society is "blind" to "flagrant" discrimination against men and should end "'soft' feminist bigotry," Conservative MP Dominic Raab has warned. In an article for PoliticsHome, he claimed men were getting a "raw deal" despite tough equality legislation, saying "it is almost taboo for a man to question the assertion that the rapidly dwindling pay gap is the result of discrimination, rather than genuine choice." His comments came as the Government was accused of wasting money on Equality Act initiatives which force organisations to prove their policies are not discriminatory. Labour have said the article shows "the Tories are out of touch". Raab defended his piece saying 'equality cuts both ways'.
Conservative MP Dominic Raab has defended asking a campaign group to remove his email from their website, insisting he had "finite time and resources" and saying that the campaign group, 38 degrees, encouraged others to "deluge" his inbox.
