We are concerned about the increasing fatality rate that has coincided with the effective cessation of the Search and Rescue operations in the central Mediterranean due to the lack of assurances over safe disembarkation arrangements. We will continue to be involved with efforts to find a solution.</del></p>

star this property answer text <p>​The UK does not fund the operation of Libyan detention centres. Our humanitarian support is carefully targeted to address the worst aspects of the detention centres in Libya, protect migrants' human rights and improve conditions. This includes providing essential relief items and medical consultations, and improving facilities. All of our work is underpinned throughout by the 'do-no-harm' principle, with various checks in place to consider possible risks to vulnerable migrants, and to ensure human rights compliance.</p><p>UK support for the Libyan Coastguard aims to increase Libya's ability to secure its own maritime borders in a human rights compliant way, with a focus on rescue activities and disrupting people smuggling. We expect all vessels to operate in accordance with International Maritime Law, including the exercise of restraint in the use of force, and adherence to established human rights norms.</p> more like this

We remain concerned by the conditions faced by migrants in Libyan detention centres and have consistently raised this issue with the Libyan Authorities. The UK continues to provide humanitarian assistance to vulnerable refugees and migrants in detention centres, where possible to do so. We are also working with the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for Africa on initiatives to improve conditions in these centres.</p><p>These efforts are part of a wider approach to migration that includes providing up to £5 million of funding for UN agencies and non-governmental organisations, supporting assisted voluntary returns, tackling people smuggling and encouraging economic development in source countries.</p> more like this
