Home Office Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of international partners, as well as organisations and individuals in the public and private sectors, as part of the process of policy development and delivery. Details of these meetings are published on the Cabinet Office website on a quarterly basis.

The UK and French Governments have been working closely together to address the situation in Northern France. The joint declaration signed by the Home Secretary and the French Interior Minister on 20 August builds on the earlier declaration of September 2014 and cements a comprehensive programme of work between our two countries. Additional French police – along with extra fencing, search dogs and other security measures provided by the UK – are bolstering security at the ports of Calais and Coquelles against clandestine activity.
