LONDON: After facing embarrassment over long delays at immigration at Heathrow before the Olympics, Britain is working on plans for fasttrack passport lanes for highvalue individuals from India and other countries to convey the message that London is “open for business” .
Brian Moore, head of UK border force, told the home affairs select committee on Tuesday that his officials were working on plans for high-value business individuals not only from the old Commonwealth countries like Australia, but from all countries.
He told senior Labour Keith Vaz, chairman of the committee, “It is an idea that officials are discussing with port operators. It will then go back to ministers for them to consider whether and how it is going to be progressed.”
As Indian companies increasingly set up offices in the UK or took over British companies, top business executives from India travel to London regularly.
