The Nationality and Borders Bill and the New Plan for Immigration, which Home Office are leading, will deliver the most comprehensive reform of the asylum system in decades. The UK has a proud history of supporting refugees, and this will continue. We will also continue to work closely with our international partners on what are shared global challenges. Ensuring refugees can access protection will remain central to our partnership with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), other humanitarian agencies and Non-Governmental Organisations.
