The Government have been clear that we are committed to working closely with international partners as we work to fix our broken asylum system. We are talking to a range of partners about how we could work together and will not rule out any option that could help reduce illegal migration and relieve the pressure on the broken asylum system.

We will not give a running commentary on discussions with our international partners but would only ever work with countries which are safe and will treat those transferred in accordance with our international obligations.
