“Dubs Amendment” Passes House of Lords

The “Dubs Amendment” to allow in 3,000 unaccompanied refugee children to come to the UK from Europe was passed in the House of Lords this afternoon. The UNHCR estimates that there are 24,000 unaccompanied child refugees in Europe and Dubs calculates that 3,000 would be the UK’s fair share to take. This vote does not mean that the amendment is final – it now has to go back to the House of Commons for a further fight. But we hope it reflects a growing mood that the UK can do more for refugees and particularly for children.
