Braverman said: “I went in. I got an assurance from Rishi Sunak that he would work with me to lower legal migration and cut the number of visas by raising the salary threshold, by imposing a cap on the number of visas, restricting the number of students – a whole host of things.

“Unfortunately I was blocked.”

She continued: “If the prime minister doesn’t agree with you if no one around the cabinet table agrees with you, you are not getting anywhere. And that is the reality that I came up against.”
