Rishi Sunak vows not to rush new immigration laws despite ’emergency legislation’ pledge

Rishi Sunak is thought to be planning to delay his plans to push through emergency immigration legislation in order to get his Rwanda aslyum seeker plan under way.

The Prime Minister promised he would do “whatever it takes” to get planes off the ground and deport those who arrive in the UK illegally.


He promised two weeks ago that he would fast track new laws to end the “merry-go-round” of legal challenges in relation to the policy after the Supreme Court ruled the Government’s plans illegal.

No10 promised the new legislation would be presented to MPs in the House of Commons “in the coming weeks”.

But after discussions with Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick on Wednesday evening, it is now claimed that the legislation is likely to take longer than previously thought.

According to The Times, Sunak has decided that the legislation must not be rushed and should only be put to Parliament once it is “legally watertight”.
