According to a prominent think group, the ‘dysfunctional’ Home Office should be separated into two independent agencies.
According to a paper issued by the Adam Smith Institute yesterday, Rishi Sunak should replace it with an immigration department and a separate security ministry.
The publication referred to the Home Office as a “relic” and asserted that dismantling it would assist ministers face enormous difficulties in immigration and crime by resolving a “dysfunctional dynamic at the top of the department.”
In 2007, following a series of scandals, Tony Blair divided the former, much bigger Home Office and established the Ministry of Justice.
Henry Hill, deputy editor of the website Conservative Home, stated in his study that the Home Secretary should head a new security department and a new position should manage the immigration ministry.
Mr. Hill stated, “On immigration, policing, and security, we need better policy, faster delivery, and clearer accountability – and dismantling this behemoth is the way to achieve these goals.”
