The PM said his plan to stop people arriving in the UK in small boats had reduced crossings by 20%, an update he hopes will ease criticism from his party and in the country over immigration policy. Speaking from Dover on Monday, after spending time in a flimsy boat to get a taste of the perilous journey, Sunak said: 'Before I launched my plan in December, the number entering the UK illegally in small boats had more than quadrupled in two years. Some said this problem was insoluble, or just a fact of 21st-century life.'
The government has also acquired two more giant barges to house 1,000 asylum seekers, Sunak confirmed, adding he would wait to announce where the new barges will be located
