Asylum: Expenditure
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government how much of the £3.6 million development fund for claims under the Dublin Regulation and for family reunion has so far been spent; and whether such expenditure has increased and accelerated the approval of cases.
Answered on: 16 November 2018

Following the Sandhurst Treaty in January 2018, officials within the French and British Governments have been working collaboratively to understand how the Dublin Development Fund can be used most effectively. Under the terms of the Sandhurst Treaty, an Asylum Liaison Officer has been deployed in Paris to facilitate this cooperation.

We are confident that the agreed programme of work will improve access to the Dublin process and ensure comprehensive support and accurate information is provided to vulnerable migrants. We are in the process of transferring these funds and will continue to work with the French Government to implement this work.
