Theresa May has said vans telling
illegal immigrants to "go home" or
face arrest will not be rolled out
across the UK.
A trial of the controversial vans
in London is still being evaluated.
But the home secretary told MPs
she accepted they had "not been a
good idea" and were too much of a
Labour said Mrs May must take
responsibility for the "complete fail-
ure" of the policy.
Explaining her decision to ditch
the campaign in the Commons, the
home secretary said: "What I ve
done is looked at the interim eval-
uation in relation to the plans---and
there were some returns achieved
as a result of that.
"Politicians should be willing to
step up to the plate and say when
they think something actually hasn t
been as good an idea, and I think
they were too blunt an instrument."
But she defended government
attempts to tighten up immigration
enforcement when people overstay
their visas, which she said had
resulted in "something around 4,000
people leaving the UK."
The government pilot, which saw
vans driving around parts of London
for a week in July, drew criticism
from across the political spectrum.
Liberal Democrat Business Secre-
tary Vince Cable described the cam-
paign as "stupid," while UKIP said
the scheme was "disturbing" and
reminiscent of a fascist dictatorship.
The vans were also criticised by
the Advertising Standards Authority,
which said the arrest statistics on
them were misleading, although the
watchdog cleared the campaign of
being offensive and irresponsible.
During the campaign, the vans
drove around the London boroughs
of Barking and Dagenham, Red-
bridge, Barnet, Brent, Ealing and
areas where it is thought a lot of
illegal immigrants live and work.
The poster displayed a picture of
handcuffs and read: "In the UK ille-
gally? Go home or face arrest."
Home Office ministers insisted
the pilot had worked---and they were
considering extending it elsewhere.

ATHENS---The head of the Council
of Europe said yesterday that other
European countries should do more
to share the burden of tackling ille-
gal migration to the continent, a
problem that has disproportionately
affected the continent s southern
The vast majority of migrants try-
ing to enter the European Union ille-
gally do so through the southern
border countries of Greece, Italy and
Hundreds have died this month
alone trying to reach the Italian
island of Lampedusa on rickety
The countries of the European
south, which have also been suffering
from a severe financial crisis over
recent years, have long called for
more assistance from the north.
"I think it s a shame how Europe
has handled this. A small group of
countries have taken the whole bur-
den, and my sympathy goes ... to
them," Thorbjoern Jagland, who
heads the continent s top human
rights organisation, told The Asso-
ciated Press in an interview during
a two-day visit to Athens.
"There should be more of a burden
sharing in Europe when it comes to
dealing with this huge challenge. But
I see no signs that this will happen,"
"Therefore, I think that it s impor-
tant now to see how we can work
with those countries that are having
the highest burden there."
The head of the Council of Europe,
which includes 47 member states,
including the 28 nations in the Euro-
pean Union, stressed it was possible
for other European countries to help
those bearing the brunt of migration
flows without having to accept larger
numbers of refugees themselves.
While the Council of Europe does
not have a say in forming European
migration policy, it does have "a
clear responsibility when it comes
to how the immigrants are being
treated when they arrive at the bor-
ders and how they are being treated
afterwards," Jagland said.
Rights groups have strongly crit-
icised Greece in the past for the con-
ditions inside its immigrant deten-
tion centres, where hundreds of
migrants rounded up across the
country for lacking the correct doc-
umentation are held until they can
be expelled. (AP)
