Britain will "make an effective contribution to the European border agency, Frontex".
"Ensure the new EU budget ... targets funding at key security challenges facing the EU".

What Douglas hasn't done is to look at the European Budget Statement that came out today.
Responding to crisis situationsMy italics.
It is particularly important to improve the Union's ability to respond to large-scale conflicts or disasters. The EU's essential contribution to the broader security dimension of external relations points to a need to build on current tools like the Instrument for Stability, CFSP actions and Election Observation Missions. Speed of deployment, flexibility and the ability to modulate action in line with changing political circumstances are all essential components
Seems that the new EU budget is doing just that.
