Minister's DR Congo and Rwanda question raises eyebrows

Minister of State Chris Philp was asked a question by an audience member from the Democratic Republic of Congo during BBC One’s Question Time.

Mr Philp asked in response: “Congo is a different country to Rwanda, isn’t it?” – raising eyebrows from panel members and the audience.

The government’s Rwanda bill says any asylum seeker entering the UK “illegally” after 1 January 2022, from a safe country such as France, could be sent to Rwanda.
