Deputy warned not to try to change law on Common Travel Area
Friday 23rd November 2012, 1:00PM GMT.
A ST PETER PORT deputy will lobby fellow States members to try and garner support to amend the Common Travel Area law.
Deputy Lester Queripel believes the law – which allows all UK, Ireland, Isle of Man and Channel Islanders to travel freely between the jurisdictions – needs to be changed.
He asked Rule 6 questions of the Home Department after predatory paedophile Anthony Luckwill, an Irish national with a dual UK passport, came to Guernsey and tried to lure a 14-year-old boy back to his hotel room.
Home minister Jonathan Le Tocq, pictured, has warned against the attempt.
‘What it would mean is if you haven’t got a passport, you won’t be able to go to the UK,’ he said.
‘It will affect the movement of people here and in the UK.’
