French Government Disputes Cameron on Calais

EU REFORM

The French interior minister last year rubbished the idea promoted by Cameron today that France might tear up their agreement with Britain on border controls if we left the EU. Bernard Cazeneuve said:

“Calling for the border with the English to be opened is not a responsible solution. It would send a signal to people smugglers and would lead migrants to flow to Calais in far greater numbers. A humanitarian disaster would ensue. It is a foolhardy path, and one the government will not pursue. On the contrary, we’re going to make the border even more watertight to dissuade smugglers and migrants, respect international rules and reduce the pressure on Calais.”

On Wato, Liam Fox demolished the idea that the French would end arrangements with Britain, accusing Cameron and Damian Green of “misquoting” the French interior minister. Looking at the verbatim quote from Cazeneuve, it would certainly appear the PM and fellow Inners are not reasonably representing the position of their French counterparts…
