MP welcomes generous refugee plans

Steve Brine warmly welcomed news that the government plans to take 20,000 refugees from Syria over this Parliament, during a long debate on national security and the refugee crisis on Monday 7th September.

The Winchester & Chandler's Ford MP told the House that there was no question that the exodus from Syria was down to the 'chaos that reigns' in the country, and that his constituents care about the fact we are generous, with many wanting to do their bit if they can.

He said that there had been a lot of talk of 'moral obligations' in his postbag over the past few weeks, and directly asked the Prime Minister if the UK had such an obligation to join the military coalition that is operating in Syria. The Prime Minister replied that there was 'no doubt' ISIL fanatics wanted to do us harm. Mr Cameron added that while he felt that what we are doing in Iraq is right, and it is right that the UK supported the actions of the coalition in Syria, the House needed a further debate about whether we should do more to help.
