Brexit LIVE: Boris urged to scrap 'unnecessary' red tape putting 40,000 jobs at risk

Justin Welby is set to blast Boris Johnson today over the Government’s Rwanda asylum seeker policy during his annual Easter sermon.

The Archbishop of Canterbury will use his Easter sermon to criticise the Prime Minister and his Cabinet colleagues after Mr Johnson unveiled fresh plans to stop Channel crossing migrants arriving from in the UK.

A record-breaking 28,395 migrants reached British shores in 2021 after making the perilous 21-mile journey from Calais.

“We can’t ask the British taxpayer to write a blank cheque to cover the costs of anyone who might want to come and live here.”

The Government’s plan will see illegal immigrants, including those who have crossed the Channel in small boats, travel 6,000 miles to east Africa.
