Following the Agenda for Migration, the European Commission has announced specific measures to respond to the current situation. These measures include an emergency relocation scheme to assist Italy and Greece; a resettlement plan, and measures to prevent migrant smuggling.

Under earlier Treaties the UK and Ireland can choose whether they wish to “opt in” to the relocation scheme.

Further information is available from the European Commission press release on the 27th of May.
