Ten Minute Rule Motion

Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell introduced his United Kingdom Borders Bill to the Commons on 11 July 2012, aiming to create a dedicated queue at international terminals for citizens of Commonwealth realms where the Queen is head of state.

The would ensure that a portrait of the Queen, a Union Flag and other appropriate national emblems are displayed at all international entry points to the UK.

The bill would also remain the UK Border Agency "HM Border Police" with an aim "to reflect and recognise the role of the Queen in protecting the border of the land she reigns".

Overall the bill aims to re-evaluate how the UK border operates and presents itself to those visiting and returning to the UK.
