Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to reports the Government is considering processing asylum claims abroad

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to reports the Government is considering processing asylum claims abroad, said:

 

“The Tories are lurching from one inhumane, ridiculous proposal to another. Last year they were talking about creating waves in the English Channel to wash boats back and buying ferries and oil rigs to process asylum claims.

 

“These absurd ideas show the Government has lost control and all sense of compassion. Ministers must act to reopen safe routes, as promised, and deliver the promised agreement with France.”
