Theresa May: Do not abandon the Dubs Scheme for refugee children
Theresa May has decided to shut down the Dubs Scheme - a promise by the Government to bring the most vulnerable refugee children to safety in the UK.
Our country has a proud tradition of welcoming those most in need. We stepped up to rescue 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi persecution.
I myself arrived in the UK by the Kindertransport.
Now more than ever we must stand by our values.
Thousands of children we promised to help are still in danger.
Britain is better than this. Sign to keep the Dubs Scheme alive.
Lord Alf Dubs
