UK 'Will Not Accept Migrant Quotas'

The UK will not be part of any EU plan to relocate thousands of African migrants who have arrived in Italy and Greece, the international development secretary has told the BBC.
Justine Greening said the government will not accept mandatory quotas.
The European Commission is expected to announce details of its plan to deal with the migrants on Wednesday.
Reports suggest it will call for a quota system for member states to relocate some 40,000 asylum seekers.
The UK has an opt-out which it has previously said it would use.
Many of the migrants arrived in southern Europe by boat in recent months.
'Work together'
The plan to use quotas to resettle those who have made it to Europe has caused controversy among several EU countries, including France and Spain.
