Andrew Bridgen calls for action to address the roots of migrant journeys to northern France

26th February 2018

Andrew Bridgen seeks assurance from the Immigration Minister that the recent agreement with France will address the roots of the problem of migration by reducing the number of migrant journeys to northern France.

Will my right hon. Friend assure the House that our recent agreement with the French Government will not merely treat the symptoms of the problem but address the deeper-rooted problem by reducing the number of migrant journeys to northern France?

An important component of the recent treaty looks at the whole route of migration. It is critical that we understand we cannot solve this solely by working with France. There is a real commitment with both Italy and Greece to make sure that, particularly with reference to our Dubs commitment, we resettle the children we are determined to bring to the UK.
