Simply not an option because of the volume of Traffic.
Decades ago, six of us, Port Health, working Felixstowe and Ipswich.
Six meant 24 in total, working shifts, holidays, sickness etc.
Huge amounts of overtime as well when the weather was bad.
100% inspection regime in a secure area because of Rabies Control and crew sneaking in for free NHS Treatment.
We had Quarantine Bouys out at sea for any ship without the right paperwork.
We used to disinfect them out there and the Port Medical Officer would stop any crew member who required medical treatment without full insurance from landing.
That was Control of our Borders, now long gone.
That is not coming back.
The Boris plan is to abolish it all and let things through without any checks.
Good Luck with that, I want no part of it at all.
