Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “France hits UK for 'minimal' contribution to stopping Channel migrants”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Tory MPs today told Emmanuel Macron it is 'within his gift' to end the migrant Channel crossings crisis as they demanded he accept an offer from the UK to deploy British police officers on French beaches to stop the journeys. 

Former Cabinet minister Robert Jenrick said the French President could 'bring this to an end now' as his Tory colleague Sir Iain Duncan Smith called on the Government to exert the 'greatest pressure' possible on Paris to do more.

Priti Patel told the House of Commons at lunchtime that she had repeated the offer to send British personnel to France to conduct joint patrols during talks with French Minister for the Interior Gerald Darmanin. 

Her comments came after Mr Macron insisted France is 'totally mobilised' to stop migrants crossing the Channel and warned Boris Johnson not to 'exploit' the latest devastating tragedy - as allies swiped at the UK's 'minimal' contribution.    

The French President rejected criticism that patrols are too lax, saying the authorities were on watch 'day and night' - as he demanded stronger international cooperation to help tackle the deadly trafficking issue.
