There are no plans for a cost-benefit analysis of the Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda to be published.

A Ministerial Direction was issued ahead of this policy proceeding and relevant letters have been published. Uncertainty is to be expected with a partnership as innovative and ground-breaking as this. As the Permanent Secretary’s letter states, there are potentially significant savings to be realised from deterring people entering the UK illegally. However, because such a deterrent effect cannot be quantified with sufficient certainty, Ministerial Direction was required to proceed.

Actual spend will be reported as part of the annual Home Office Reports and Accounts in the usual way.
