Starmer: Braverman has problem with points-based systems

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has asked Prime Minister Rishi Sunak why Suella Braverman has a problem "coping with points-based systems".

Sir Keir told the Commons: "The Prime Minister stood on three Tory manifestos, each one promised to reduce immigration.

Each promise broken.” Mr Sunak defended the number of work visas issued to foreign nationals, saying the last set of figures were "unique" and included many people welcomed on humanitarian grounds.

United Nations 'concerned' over Home Secretary's attack on refugee convention

The United Nations has rebuked the home secretary's "concerning" criticisms of the refugee convention during her speech in Washington. Suella Braverman claimed the 1951 convention had lowered the threshold so asylum seekers only needed to prove they faced discrimination, rather than a risk of torture, violence or death. She added the international community had "failed" to modernise international laws and deal with an "existential challenge". UNHCR Representative to the United Kingdom Vicky Tennant responded to Braverman's claims saying, "the spirit of the refugee convention is very much based on international cooperation" and that it would be worrying "if there were to be serious efforts to restrict the interpretation of the refugee convention" or to step away from its obligations.
