Nick Thomas-Symonds comments on Priti Patel’s plans for migrants to be held in an offshore hub

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on Priti Patel’s plans for migrants to be held in an offshore hub, said:

 

“This is yet more evidence of the lack of compassion and competence at the Home Office under Conservative Ministers.

 

“These plans are unconscionable – and an attempt to create a smokescreen to distract from the fact Ministers have failed to reopen safe and legal routes, failed to reach an effective agreement with France to deal with criminal gangs, and failed to introduce effective border measures to stop the Delta Variant getting a foothold in this country.”
