Dear Neil Care,

Surely in the fight against terrorism G4S should be passing on those details to Port of Dover Police.

When I passed through Dover Port and asked why I as being checked, I was told it was for terrorism reasons and they have had to confiscate many items. I got pointed at the direction at some big blue bins and I was told they were full of confiscated items.

This information should be in the public domain.

Does G4S pass this information onto any public body within Government that is open to a FOI request?

Yours sincerely,
