The UK Home Department has been called to account for an extra £150m spent on Rwanda deportation plan.

The Rwanda Plan was an agreement between the UK and Rwanda, under which Rwandan asylum seekers living in the UK were to be sent back. The UK gave Rwanda £140 million to settle the evacuees. The deal was signed during the tenure of former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

According to the sources, the amount spent on the deportation plane has doubled from the initial allocation (140 million pounds). Now it has increased to 290 million pounds, of which 240 million pounds have been given to Rwanda while the remaining 50 Million will be given later.

UK Home Office Secretary Matthew Raycroft has been ordered to appear before the Public Accounts Committee on December 11 due to this matter.
