To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to consult Médecins Sans Frontières about the ways in which healthcare for unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people in France can be improved, including psycho-social support.

​We do not currently have any plans to consult with Médecins Sans Frontières.

The UK will continue to work closely with the French authorities, our international partners, and local stakeholders on this issue, as underpinned by the Sandhurst Treaty. This makes specific provision for improving conditions for migrants in France, including facilitating the transfer of unaccompanied minors to the UK under national relocation schemes and improving access to French domestic asylum procedures.

We remain committed to engaging actively in shaping the international response on migration.
