To ask His Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of France about the implementation of the 1995 agreement on the return of illegal immigrants; and what was the outcome of these discussions.

The 1995 agreement continues to be used to manage migration flows between France and the UK. It enables the return of illegal migrants seeking to irregularly enter both the UK and France.

The agreement is invoked when an individual without leave in either the UK or France seeks to enter via the Eurotunnel or Channel Port, when we can clearly indicate the time of embarkation and the individual does not claim asylum at the port.

We continue to work with France on this global migration crisis. We are aiming for solutions to collectively address the wide range of factors associated with migrant movements across Europe and the Channel.
