UK says wants greater flexibility to return illegal migrants back to France

Tue, 11th Aug 2020 07:17

LONDON, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Britain wants greater flexibility
to return back to France illegal migrants who risk the perilous
journey across the English Channel in small boats, a junior
health minister said on Tuesday.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he wants to
work with the French to stop the illegal crossings.

"What he's looking at, quite rightly, is greater
flexibility... in returning people who have come here
illegally... and need to be returned back to France," junior
health minister Edward Argar told Sky News.
