French have to take ownership of migrant crossings and not make it our problem, says Tory MP

Europe Editor and Presenter

The Home Office gave us a statement earlier claiming that “the government has delivered on its promise to the British people to take back control of our immigration system”.

We did ask to speak to a minister to discuss that assertion, but the department refused to make anyone available to speak on camera today.

We were joined by Conservative MP Tim Loughton, who’s a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee and has a constituency on the English Channel.
