Theresa May to face questions over order to relax border checks
The Home Secretary will be accused of being responsible for the most serious immigration scandal to face the Coalition since it took office last year.
Events at the UK Border Agency, which is part of the Home Office, have raised fears that foreign criminals and terrorists could have been allowed to enter Britain unchecked.
Whitehall sources said that in July, Home Office ministers asked officials to draw up a range of measures to cut queues at airports and ports during the summer holiday season.
Damian Green, the immigration minister, then told the UKBA to relax checks on people carrying British passports and those from other European countries.
