However, those remarks have now been contradicted by the French government.

Speaking after the referendum result, French government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said bilateral immigration treaties between Britain and France will not be affected by the Brexit.

"On the question of immigration, to be clear, British exit from the European Union will not lead to changes in terms of immigration treaties with United Kingdom... These are bilateral treaties," he said.

The French foreign minister Jean-Marc Ayrault dismissed outright any calls for renegotiation of the Le Touquet accord. “Would that also mean putting in place boats for people who otherwise risk drowning? I think we should be serious,” he said in a TV interview.

Ayrault said other bilateral immigration treaties would also remain in place. He said additional important agreements between France and Britain, such as the 2010 Lancaster House defence and security treaties, would also be maintained.
