AdvertisementImmigration checks between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will also be stepped up to catch non-British and non-Irish nationals who travel illegally between the two countries, the paper said.

But it insisted that there is no intention to introduce fixed border immigration controls on the land border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
