LONDON (Reuters) – Britain wants more flexibility to return illegal migrants who risk the perilous journey across the Channel in small boats to France, a young health minister said on Tuesday.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he wants to work with the French to stop the illegal crossings.

“What he is rightly considering is more flexibility … to send back people who have come here illegally … and must be sent back to France,” young Health Minister Edward Argar told Sky News .
