Very pleased today to be re-appointed as Scottish National Party (SNP)spokesperson on Immigration, Asylum and Border Control.
Neat that it coincided with #WorldRefugeeDay, and our new Westminster group today took the opportunity to show our support for #RefugeeWeek and Refugee Festival Scotland. Refugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the country. This year’s theme is based around ‘our shared future’ and aims to encourage a better understanding between communities.
Yesterday I met the Scottish Refugee Council to discuss some of the key challenges facing refugees and how Scotland can continue to play its part in sheltering some of the world’s most vulnerable people.
