Liz Truss last night vowed to protect the Rwanda immigration scheme with UK laws in a bid to block challenges to the controversial plan.

The Foreign Secretary used a TV interview to cement her lead over Rishi Sunak by promising to take Britain’s immigration policies back into the government’s hands.

She also pledged to strike Rwanda-style deals with more countries and to take a hard line on the French, who she said were not doing enough to stop migrants at the borders.

In the one-hour programme – The People’s Forum on the GB News TV channel – Miss Truss fielded questions from a live studio audience, Daily Mail readers and viewers on subjects including slashing VAT, the cost-of-living squeeze, education and housing.
