“We have the toughest border measures anywhere in the world.”

Boris Johnson, House of Commons

June 16, 2021

Facts 

Boris Johnson told the House of Commons that the UK has the “toughest border measures” of “anywhere in the world.”

This was untrue. Many countries, including Singapore and Australia, had far tougher border measures than the UK.

Verdict

The Prime Minister’s statement was false. It remains on the Commons record in defiance of the Ministerial Code.
