Motion text

That this House is appalled at the humanitarian crisis unfolding on the doorstep of Europe and urges the Government to honour and follow in the great traditions of the UK by accepting many more thousands of genuine and desperate refugees, caused by the greatest displacement of people since the Second World War; notes that whilst Germany has pledged to resettle 30,000 refugees under its commitment to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the UK has so far taken approximately just 200 under its own Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme; urges the Prime Minister and Home Secretary to build on their recent announcements by re-energising the spirit of the Kinder-Transport and bringing forward innovative ideas, such as a voluntary national homes register for those citizens able and generous enough to accommodate the most vulnerable refugees; further notes that this would offer new routes for the public into existing and proposed resettlement programmes; and finally commends the work of the many thousands of people from all political persuasions across the country who share a desire to offer refuge and hope to those escaping great hardship, violence and terror from across the world.
