Thurrock MP looks to better solutions than “sending people to Rwanda”

THURROCK MP Jackie Doyle-Price rose on the floor of the House of Commons as part of a debate on the Illegal Migration Bill.

Ms Doyle-Price said: “May I just say to my right hon. Friend that in the past week we have seen arrests and convictions in Essex? One example was over the tragedy that befell the Vietnamese a few years ago, but another was a new gang that has been identified that is trafficking people to work in modern slavery locally, in Grays.

“Although the British public want us to stop the boats, the British public are also generous in spirit, and what they really want is to make sure that this country is not being taken advantage of.

“The responsibility to tackle that lies with the machinery of Departments, our criminal justice system and our law enforcement agencies. If they can all get a grip, will that not be a better solution than sending people to Rwanda?
