He added: “We all want this to be resolved as quickly as possible.” According to reports, the Prime Minister wants to set targets for stopping boats and to have a minimum of French officers patrolling beaches. He also hopes to be able to deploy Border Force officers to France. Downing Street stated that talks about a France deal were in the “final stages” following the meeting between leaders. According to the official spokesperson for the Prime Minister, talks on specific details of a deal were being held separately with Home Office officials. Sunak also supported Stella Braver man as Home Secretary, saying that the Government was making progress in reducing the Manson migrant processing center’s overcrowding.

This was “back below” its maximum capacity at 1,600 after more than 2,300 migrants were relocated to other accommodations.
