Explaining his administration’s five-point priority areas in 2023, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has restated that the United Kingdom (UK) Government will pass new laws to detain and deport illegal migrants in the country.

ConsumerConnect learnt PM Sunak said this  Wednesday, January 4, 2023 in his first speech for the New Year at Stratford, London.

The Prime Minister at the forum had reeled off five promises for the year to address immigration, health, economy, inflation and national debt, agency report noted.

It is also recalled the United Nations (UN) recently accused Sunak of limiting opportunities for migrants to seek asylum in the UK.

The UK PM stressed: “So, I want to make five promises to you today. Five pledges to deliver peace of mind.

“Five foundations, on which to build a better future for our children and grandchildren.”

Report says Britain  has been battling with the poor economy and soaring inflation that have compelled Labour unions, including nurses, railway workers and teachers to embark on industrial actions at one point or the other in the last two months.

However, in his speech Wednesday, Sunak pledged to address all of these pending matters in his country.

He further said: “First, we will halve inflation this year to ease the cost of living and give people financial security.

“Second, we will grow the economy, creating better paid jobs and opportunity right across the country.”

Sunak stated: “Third, we will make sure our national debt is falling so that we can secure the future of public services.

“Fourth, NHS waiting lists will fall and people will get the care they need more quickly.”

Addressing ‘pervasive illegal migration’ in UK

In his approach to resolving the illegal migration pervading Britain, the Prime Minister further said: “Fifth, we will pass new laws to stop small boats, making sure that if you come to this country illegally, you are detained and swiftly removed.”
