britain's immigration minister has defended the government's handling of the rise in migrants and refugees crossing the english channel well in two hundred twenty people have attended the crossing since november well look at the view from the british side of the channel in just a moment but first bernard smith begins our report in northwest friends from college the messages being sent to families in africa the middle east iran and afghanistan will be about failed attempts to make it to an. electricity comes for just a couple of hours a day from generators provided by local charities. this camp has nothing but the around six hundred migrants stuck here on a freezing windy december day it's a hopeless place living conditions you are just making people every very desperate and the rebels who did way over. to escape here some migrants are now prepared to pay smugglers to cross the channel in rubber boats for others the risk is too great that we tried taking
a boat. then you know i want to save my lives. and give myself for the good this is important my life this is then you lose the board this is this is going to have the main the french and british governments have spent millions of dollars fortifying port against people trying to stow away on lorries it's one theory why more people are turning to boats the migrants that launched themselves into the channel in rubber dinghies from here risk high seas strong currents freezing water and they risk collision in one of the world's busiest shipping lanes my colleague sonia guy i go picks up the story and go. exhausted and freezing these people made a hazardous journey on the flimsiest of vessels rubber dinghies this latest sudden surge in numbers of those arriving like this has alerted british authorities to the dangers of a possible catastrophic accident in this stretch of water off the southern coast so
much so that the british home secretary is now treating this as a major incident on saturday the immigration minister went to the town of dover to meet border offices they say it has been difficult to keep up with the numbers of people who have arrived in these circumstances and what they need is help to effectively patrol the area and closer working relations with officials across the channel in france what we're doing is constantly reviewing the resources that we need continuing the really important. the french and it's absolutely critical that we share information at the highest on the most effective level because of course what we want to do is to make sure that people don't set sail across the channel make a really perilous journey at a treacherous time of the year it may only be a fifty kilometer journey between kalai and dover but the english channel is also one of the world's busiest shipping lanes and while some politicians hid in britain have called for more patrols the concern is is that this will merely encourage
others to come and make that dangerous journey the latest route shows how despite the dangers many are desperate enough to risk everything to make it here and to escape the difficult conditions in makeshift camps in france but even if they make it here there is no guarantee that they can stay here sonny diagonal al-jazeera. the growing pay gap between executives in the average worker is the target of new regulations coming into force in britain from january the first u.k. listed companies will have to more uncertain reveal and justify the difference in salaries between the boardroom and the shop floor paul brennan reports now from london as part of our series looking into new laws for two thousand and nineteen. the glass and metal towers of london's financial district symbolize the success and sometimes excess of britain's top companies while enforced public austerity has
kept a lid on the average working wage the eye watering salaries and extraordinary bonuses of the top u.k. bosses have sparked outrage in twenty seventeen alone the salary of top bosses jumped eleven percent to four point nine million dollars over the past twenty years or so we've seen the pay of a foot c. one hundred c. for about fifty or sixty times that the average u.k. work to bore like one hundred fifty times now there's been no real justification for that in terms of company performance so i definitely think it is the case that there's been a major corporate governance or policy failure somewhere along the line among a string of high profile controversies in twenty eighteen with a ninety five million dollars bonus paid to jeff fairburn c.e.o. of the housebuilder persimmon the public outrage cost him his job. the royal mail paid its new chief executive rico back a seven point three million dollars signing on fee despite seventy percent of shareholders objecting and a shareholder revolt bt failed to block
a two point nine million dollars package for gavin patterson the departing chief executive remuneration committees have been the quiet for a long time now to take into account paying conditions elsewhere in the company when setting executive pay and they have absolutely failed to do this from january twenty ninth listed companies with more than two hundred fifty employees must calculate unpublicized the pay ratio between the boss and the average worker the institute of directors supports the new rules although it says some comparisons will be more useful than others but if for the same company you'll seeing say the pay ratio increase from one year to the next so top exact a moving upwards at a faster rate than that of the average employee that could give rise to legitimate questions in the sense that you're describing and if companies refuse to moderate themselves there is scope for further government intervention perhaps policies from
the government in relation to their procurement activities or in relation to the. tax system that would favor the companies with lower pay ratios and penalize those with the vast caps that have become increasingly complex in recent years the new pay ratio regulations should strengthen shareholders ability to block excessive deals and could shame companies into actually complying with u.k. boardrooms have shown themselves to be remarkably brazen despite public criticism and more may yet be needed in order to rein in the worst excesses paul brennan al-jazeera the city of london. gets all the stories we.
