As part of the overall £45.5 million package included in the Sandhurst Treaty to underpin the joint co-operation between the UK and France, we have allocated £3.6 million specifically to fund the development of the Dublin process to support transfers of eligible children to the UK (including training for those working with unaccompanied children, family tracing and targeted information campaigns). This full package of £3.6 million was paid to the French Government at the end of 2018. We continue to work with France to transfer eligible children under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016 and the Dublin regulation and transfers are ongoing.
