David Bartlett writes in the Echo
A TEAM of illegal workers are to be removed from the country after being caught in a raid on Liverpool’s waterfront.
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) caught seven Indian nationals working illegally at the Countryside Neptune development on Mann Island, the ECHO can reveal.
He goes on;
A spokesman for UKBA said: “There was an intelligence-led operation in Liverpool at Mann Island Project Construction Site in Liverpool city centre.
“Seven Indian nationals who were working illegally were found, and appropriate action has been taken.
“We won’t tolerate illegal working in our communities, and we’re working hard to clamp down on this issue to reduce the attractiveness of the UK to illegal immigrants.
“Anyone who takes on a foreign national without permission to work in the UK is breaking the law, undermining law abiding businesses and faces a big fine.
“There are strict rules about which foreign nationals can get a job in the UK and businesses have a clear responsibility to carry out the right checks.”
A spokesman for Neptune Developments said;
It was working with Bam to make sure there was no repeat of the incident.
“We are disappointed and concerned by what has happened, particularly given our strong commitment to delivering local employment and maintaining stringent health and safety standards.
This job is funded by taxpayers money through the North Vested Interest Development Agency (NWDA)and sponsered by Merseytravel.
Local company using illegal labour hang your head in shame Steve Parry of Neptune Development aren;t you making enough money.
This follows on from our breaking news story two weeks ago........better late than never.
Further more the NWDA are giving them more money. This time to ruin New Brighton with a Morrissons supermarket on the seafront. How many millions of the public purse can one greedy company employing illegals get?.
