Responding to the news that the Government's Rwanda plan has been ruled unlawful by the Supreme Court, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Alistair Carmichael MP said:

“It was clear from the get-go that the Conservatives’ Rwanda scheme was destined to fail. Not only is it immoral, unworkable and incredibly costly for taxpayers - but the Supreme Court has confirmed that it’s unlawful too.

“So much time and money has already been wasted. It’s time for James Cleverly to get serious and get on with fixing the broken asylum system.

“Tackling the sky-high asylum backlog and creating safe and legal routes for sanctuary will make far more progress towards that than this pet project policy ever could.”
