Not So Great Britain

Australia Spies, Immigration Share Info | July 11, 2007

The government has accelerated plans to let spies share information with immigration officials, a week after a foreign doctor was arrested in connection with the failed British terror attacks, the prime minister said Sunday. Prime Minister John Howard said that new software linking the computer systems of the Australian Security and Intelligence Organization and the Immigration Department will allow deeper background checks on anyone applying to enter Australia.

Howard called it a “major upgrade of Australia’s control system.”

“These new resources … give us extraordinary additional capacity to drill down into the backgrounds of people who seek to come to Australia,” he told reporters.
