To ask His Majesty's Government when they expect to be able to make a full value for money assessment of (1) the Illegal Migration Act 2023, and (2) the Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Act 2024; and when they expect to be able to assess with certainty the level of deterrent effect of this legislation.

Both the Illegal Migration Act 2023 and the Safety of Rwanda Act 2024 aim to put a stop to illegal migration into the UK by removing the incentive to make dangerous small boat crossings.

The Home Office has published its Economic Impact Assessment for the Illegal Migration Act https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/impact-assessments-covering-migration-policy and Safety of Rwanda Act Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill: impact assessments - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).
