The cabinet has been officially advised that any attempt to amend or withdraw from Britain's asylum obligations under international human rights treaties is likely to be ruled illegal by the British courts.

A joint Home Office/Cabinet Office document on future migration policy, passed to the Guardian, also warns that a British withdrawal from the 1951 Geneva convention on refugees would lead to the collapse of the international protection regime, with millions of people left in limbo.
