Syrian refugees fleeing ISIS to be granted asylum in Britain, Cameron announces
Dailymail Uk Reports Britain will take in more refugees fleeing the civil war in Syria, David Cameron announced today.
The Prime Minister said the UK would ‘modestly expand’ a scheme to take in migrants from the war-torn Middle East.
Mr Cameron had previously only committed to take in 500 migrants from Syria over three years, but senior government sources indicated that he was now prepared to accept ‘a few hundred more’.
Speaking in Slovakia today, the Prime Minister said: ‘I can announce that we will work with the United Nations to modestly expand this national scheme so that we provide resettlement for the most vulnerable fleeing Syria, those who cannot be adequately protected in neighbouring countries.’
