James Cleverly is expected to fly to Rwanda this week to sign a new treaty in an effort to revive Rishi Sunak's plan to deal with illegal immigration.

The Home Secretary hopes to get an agreement over the line within days, Government sources said last night. His department is also drawing up 'emergency legislation' to help deliver on the Prime Minister's hopes of getting flights to Rwanda under way by spring.

But Mr Cleverly faces mounting scepticism within his own Government that the scheme will ever see the light of day.

One Minister told The Mail on Sunday: 'We're not going to get a single migrant on a plane to Kigali before the Election.

'Rishi and James Cleverly are going through the motions. But everyone knows it's not going to happen.'

One of them, Philip Hollobone, said he was 'ashamed to be a Conservative under Rishi Sunak' because of the PM's migration policies, a source in the room said.

Last month official data revealed that the number of legal migrants in 2023 was 670,000 – only a slight fall from 745,000 in 2022.
