RUSI's Annual Security Lecture


Giving a speech on the NCA's work at the Royal United Services Institute, Mr Biggar said the agency was focused on "disrupting" organised crime. "If we can disrupt the supply of engines and boats coming to the UK, we can reduce the flow of people coming and increase the cost of a trip," Mr Biggar told reporters at the event. He suggested it may be more effective than trying to track down those behind the smuggling.
