Before the referendum the Minister said that scrapping juxtaposed border controls was "a foolhardy path, and one the government will not pursue". Monsieur Cazeneuve has reiterated that commitment this week, saying:
There is no reason to call it (the agreement) into question after the vote last Thursday. Doing this would send a very bad signal. The reality is that the Touquet agreement, which allows the intervention of British forces in Calais, just as it allows French forces in Dover, is not being called into question following the exit of the UK from the European Union.
