Protecting vulnerable children remains a key priority of this Government and we have a proud record of doing so through our asylum system and our resettlement schemes. The UK remains fully committed to meeting our obligations under the Dublin III Regulation and we are keen to ensure that children who have family members in the UK, including those currently in Greece, are transferred as soon as it is safe to do so.
