Cameron to act on Olympic delays
The Prime Minister has suggested he may take further action to deal with delays at airports in the run-up to the Olympics.
More staff have been hired to deal with passport checks at Heathrow, but David Cameron indicated that he still thinks more needs to be done.
The Prime Minister was confronted on the issue today by Labour chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee Keith Vaz.
He asked: "Last week it was revealed that officials at the UKBA received bonuses of £3.5m. Given the horrendous queues at our airports and the fact that 100,000 files have now been archived by the UKBA and 185 people have absconded in the last six months...Does he agree in future, we should be rewarding success, not failure?"
Mr Cameron replied: "There is absolutely no place in the modern civil service for a presumption of good performance. I do believe in paying people well for good performance but if they don't perform well and don't meet their targets they shouldn't get a bonus."
