I thank my hon. Friend for her work in this area. The issues that she raises are of direct importance to intelligence gathering and child protection.

When the next legislative opportunity arises, if not before, we will carefully consider giving Border Force powers to compel individuals to submit to searches of their devices, if they are suspected of holding child sexual abuse material.
