We have also increased joint intelligence work to tackle the trafficking and smuggling networks behind cross-Channel illegal migration, including enhanced police investigation cooperation at local and national level.</p><p><br>On 24 October 2016, the British government announced a £36 million package of support to further enhance the security of the juxtaposed controls and reduce irregular migrant pressures in the Calais area and we are currently working to establish a Joint Operation Command and Coordination Centre (JOCCC) in Northern France to better support joint law enforcement initiatives, whilst looking at what more can be done jointly to tackle migration pressures upstream in source and transit countries.</p>

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>
