Rishi Sunak has suffered his first defeat on his Rwanda plan by the House of Lords.
The Upper House handed the Government its first blow, voting against the ratification of the new treaty with Rwanda by 214 votes to 171.
This development offers the Government a pretty big indication that the Bill, due to be debated in the House next week, will not be passed.
This follows a report last week that recommended the treaty not be ratified, despite the Prime Minister urging peers not to “frustrate the will of the people”.
