Harriot Harman on Question Time

I’m just watching Question Time and noticed that Harriet Harman was told that she was wrong when she was correct (rare I know, but she was and I feel I should point this out).

As I said, I hate to say it but Harriot Harman was correct when she said the maximum fine for Baroness Scotland was £5,000 – the £10,000 fine only applies to those who made no attempt to check that someone is entitled to work in the UK.  £5,000 is the maximum fine for making enquiries but not keeping proof of those enquiries or making enough enquiries into someone’s eligibility to work in the UK; which is what the UK Border Agency found in the case of Baroness Scotland.
