To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what estimate he has made of the number of acts of criminal damage or violence undertaken in the pas de Calais region against vehicles owned by UK companies or citizens since July 2014; and what representations he has made to French authorities on that matter.

Policing in the Pas de Calais region is a matter for the French authorities. The UK Government therefore does not hold details on the number of acts of criminal damage or violence undertaken in the Pas de Calais region. I and my Ministerial colleagues regularly discuss matters of law and order in the region with our French counterparts. The Secretary of State for the Home Department, my right hon. Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Ms May), was in Paris on 2 July to meet her French counterpart, M Cazeneuve, the Interior Minister. Law and order was among the topics they discussed.
