star this property answer text <p>The Greek Government is responsible for running the camps in the hotspot islands, which includes making all necessary improvements to camp facilities and for taking steps to reduce overcrowding. I set out the responsibilities of the UK experts in my previous response (HL11028) as well as how the work they do interlinks with the Greek authorities.</p><p>The UK experts are seconded to the EU Commission and as a result we cannot give a running commentary on the work they carry out.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (VPRS) offers a safe and le-gal route to the UK, prioritising the most vulnerable refugees from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. This means those currently in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt. The Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme (VCRS) resettles ‘at-risk’ refugee children and their families from the region.</p><p>Resettlement is one part of the UK’s response to the refugee crisis and is complemented by the UK’s significant humanitarian aid programme and dip-lomatic efforts to end the Syrian conflict. We believe this approach is the best way to ensure that the UK’s help has the greatest impact for the majority of refugees who remain in the region and their host countries, whilst recognising that for some vulnerable people the only solution is to bring them to countries like the UK.</p><p>In addition, the Government has committed to relocate 480 unaccompanied children from Europe to the UK under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016. Over 220 have already been relocated to the UK and we are working closely with France, Greece and Italy to fill the remaining places as soon as possible</p>
