We are lagging way behind – Nandy

Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy asks Gove to clarify the government’s role in matching Ukrainian families to their sponsors.

She says she was relieved when the scheme was announced, but that “a press release is not a plan”.

“[Gove] went on TV to say Ukrainians could be here by Sunday, but he’s just told us they’ll still need a visa under the application process.”

She says these are 50-page forms asking people who have fled to upload documents they don’t have.

Nandy says the UK’s response has been “incredibly slow”, adding that only 4,000 visas have been issued so far, and asks for the process to be simplified.

“We are lagging way behind,” she adds.
