Children to be moved from Calais to other locations across France

Responding to the news that all unaccompanied refugee children currently accommodated in the containers at the Calais camp will be transferred to other locations across France tomorrow from 8am, Rabbi Janet Darley, Citizens UK Leader, said:

“Whilst we welcome the move to accommodate unaccompanied children away from the containers, where they could not be properly safeguarded, this cannot be used as a reason to delay the transfer of those who have a legal right to come to the UK. We call on the British and French governments to work together to resume transfers and quickly allocate all the children accommodation so that they can start to rebuild their lives as swiftly as possible.”
