Question for written answer E-015742-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Julie Girling (ECR)

 Subject:  Gibraltar border crossing
 Answer in writing 

I have been contacted by constituents in Gibraltar who have raised concerns about the adequacy of the border-crossing facilities for the elderly, the disabled and people with non-machine readable passports. There is also frustration owing to the fact that the passport machines are often faulty or inadequate.

Does the Commission plan to conduct any unannounced checks on the border? There is concern that previous checks, when notification was given in advance, resulted in an improved border process on the day in question which did not reflect the usual day-to-day situation.
