David Burrowes seeks assurance from Government on refugee children from Calais ‘Jungle’

31st October 2016

As vulnerable refugee children are being transferred from Calais to specialist centres across France, David Burrowes seeks confirmation from the Government that all those who are eligible to be transferred to the UK are being identified and monitored by the UK.

On the subject of refugees, may we focus on the real issue of the safety of children? As children are being transferred from the containers to specialist centres across France, can the Minister confirm that Dubs and Dublin children have all been identified, that they will be transferred as soon as possible to the UK, and that they will be kept safe under the close supervision of NGOs and Home Office officials?
I can give my hon. Friend the assurance that we are working hard to identify children who would qualify under Dubs and Dublin. It is very important indeed that we ensure that the most vulnerable, particularly the children under 13 and those who may be vulnerable to sexual exploitation, are prioritised under the Dubs amendment procedure.
