Rishi Sunak’s party faces an internal row that has threatened to scupper the prime minister’s signature policy to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda. Tory MP Philip Davies said that the party is “completely united” in its desire to stop illegal immigration, adding, “We are all united in the view that we want to stop illegal immigration, and also that we think that sending them to Rwanda, a third country, is actually the right solution. The Conservative Party in Parliament is united in that belief. Now, obviously, we all have our own particular opinions about whether or not this Bill will be wholly effective or whether it could be improved and all the rest of it. But we’re completely united in that desire to stop illegal immigration and do what it takes.”

UK transport secretary Mark Harper said that Rishi Sunak will “continue listening” to Conservative MPs about possible amendments to his Rwanda Bill.

“All Conservative MPs want to deal with this. We’ll continue listening to colleagues if colleagues have got ideas about how to strengthen the Bill and improve it consistent with international law and with keeping Rwanda onside, who’ve made it clear that they want us to stick with international law,” he said.
