'The floodgates would open': Fury over EU plans to make Britain accept 90,000 refugees a year as part of migrant quota 'that would make Calais even more of a magnet' 


MPs and HGV drivers have warned that EU plans which would force Britain to accept 90,000 refugees in the next year as part a quota will make Calais 'even more of a magnet' to migrants.


There has been widespread fury at the plans from Brussels but a failure to agree a quota could see the UK denied the right to deport asylum seekers to their country of arrival.


Number 10 last night vowed to fight the proposal, which is a major blow to David Cameron’s EU referendum ambitions. 


MPs warned the meddling by eurocrats and judges meant Britain had lost control of its borders.


‘This is scandalous,’ said Sir Gerald Howarth, a former Tory minister. ‘The tribunal should have no business in this matter. We have very strict laws on immigration and asylum that are set by Parliament.


‘It is not for the courts to undermine them in this way.’
