star this property answer text <p>In October 2016, the French Government requested the support of the UK Government for its clearance of the Calais camp. As part of our comprehensive support for the camp clearance we transferred more than 750 children to the UK directly from France. Those children who were not eligible for transfer to the UK are in the care of French authorities.</p><p>The French Government is alive to the threat of new camps appearing in northern France and we are aware of reports of some migrants returning to the area. However, official figures for the number of children present in the area are not available. Children in France are the responsibility of the French authorities.</p><p>On 10 March, the Government published the basis on which further transfers to the UK under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016 will be made. The Government has invited referrals of eligible children from France, Italy and Greece. The UK Government will not be involved in the identification or assessment of children.</p><p>Under Article 8 of the Dublin III Regulation, children can have their asylum claims transferred to another EU Member State where they have close family. We continue to work closely with the French authorities and other EU partners to ensure the timely and efficient operation of the Dublin III Regulation.</p>

Faith communities are crucial to tackling hatred and intolerance. Through our ‘Building a Stronger Britain Together’ programme we are supporting partners across the country to challenge extremism – including faith groups.</p><p>Protecting freedom of religion and belief is also central to the UN Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism and cuts across two of the four pillars of the UN Global CT Strategy: addressing the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism, and ensuring respect for human rights for all and the rule of law as the fundamental basis for the fight against terrorism.</p><p>The new Commission for Countering Extremism will also support our faith communities in stamping out extremism and promoting our fundamental values.</p> more like this
