UN Libya envoy Martin Kobler visited a migrants' camp in Tripoli on Tuesday, and said he would be discussing their voluntary repatriation with the authorities. "They do not have enough food. They have really a serious situation here and it's very important to solve their humanitarian problem," he said. "If they want to return they must be given the chance to return." According to the United Nations, more than 5,000 people died last year in attempts to cross the Mediterranean and reach Europe, most of them after embarking from the Libyan coast after paying people smugglers. This was the highest annual toll on record. Unlike previous years, winter has not brought an end to the migrant arrivals, just a reduction in the numbers. — AFP

We are now attending their board meetings and are able to work much more strategically and I have spoken at length so I won't repeat it, Mr Speaker, but those areas where we wish to see better customer service and we hope to bring forward some announcements shortly.
