Today I spoke to the BBC on the one year anniversary of the first Syrian refugees arrival in Scotland. Scotland has taken in over 1200 refugees from the region since then, however, I believe that more can be done on a UK wide basis.
“In Scotland, it is very positive that 29 out of 32 authorities have taken in refugees but much more can be done on a UK-wide basis.”
“I genuinely think that, given the scale of the crisis, and the problems that you see across Europe and the reg…ion across Syria, we are not yet playing our part as the United Kingdom. It’s not easy, it is challenging but I think we can contribute far more.”
