Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Processing of Migrants in Albania

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 18 November 2021.

Instead of chasing headlines about unconscionable offshore processing, the Government should address its own failures.

There is no effective deal in place with the French Authorities, and, instead of providing properly managed safe and legal routes, the Government closed the Dubs Scheme that helped unaccompanied children.

The Government’s incompetence is dangerous, with ever-increasing numbers of people risking their lives in the English Channel.
