The European Union will almost treble its spending on frontier defence and create a 1,500-strong rapid reaction force under proposals to tackle the migration crisis.

 

The plan unveiled on Tuesday aims to boost security on Europe’s perimeter while preserving the 26-nation Schengen zone at the continent’s heart, within which people can travel freely across national borders without passport checks.

 

If approved by governments, a new European border and coast guard will replace the EU’s Frontex agency and have expanded powers, including the new standby force. It will have funding worth €322m (£234m) by 2020.
