Green Party urges Government to fulfil promise to help child asylum seekers

The Green Party has urged the British Government to act on its promise to help unaccompanied child refugees as UK councillors visit Calais LINK.

Natalie Bennett, Green Party Leader, said:
Britain has a humanitarian responsibility to help the unaccompanied children in Calais - and through what was known as the Dubbs amendment, passed four months ago, we have promised to do so.

Yet the Government has not acted, and thousands of unaccompanied children fleeing war have been left in acute danger.

History will not judge us favourably if we abandon our responsibility to these children.
