Prime Minister (PM) statement on Safety of Rwanda Bill: 23 April 2024

PM Rishi Sunak's statement on the passing of the Safety of Rwanda Bill

LONDON, United Kingdom, April 23, 2024/APO Group/ --

The passing of this landmark legislation is not just a step forward but a fundamental change in the global equation on migration.

We introduced the Rwanda Bill to deter vulnerable migrants from making perilous crossings and break the business model of the criminal gangs who exploit them. The passing of this legislation will allow us to do that and make it very clear that if you come here illegally, you will not be able to stay. 

Our focus is to now get flights off the ground, and I am clear that nothing will stand in our way of doing that and saving lives.
