One of the important questions to candidates in the general election was from Safe Passage. Not all candidates will have been sent it from a constituent, and not all candidates will have had time to answer, so we are publishing what the agreed Liberal Democrat Policy is on the question of child refugees.
QUESTION FROM SAFE PASSAGE
Can you let us know if you’re committed to giving child refugees safe and legal routes to the UK.
For too long what Government has said they will, but that has not been enough, and has not been translated into action for these young people in desperate need of safety
LIBERAL DEMOCRATS WOULD:
Provide an effective mechanism to implement in full Section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016 that commits the UK to welcoming unaccompanied refugee children, this scheme to be expanded to welcome 10,000 such children over a period of 10 years.
