Interfaith campaigners aim to lobby Prime Minister over child refugees

Posted on March 9, 2017

There is a ‘real will’ to find homes for child refugees in the UK, campaigners have said, despite a Parliamentary defeat on the issue. On Tuesday, MPs knocked back an attempt to revive a scheme to provide shelter for unaccompanied youngsters fleeing warzones in Syria. Known as the Dubs Amendment, it was inspired by Lord Alf Dubs, who was brought to Britain with the Kindertransport organised by Maidenhead’s Sir Nicholas Winton on the eve of the Second World War.
