Please email your MP
After a narrow defeat in the House of Commons by 18 votes on Monday 25 April, an amendment to the immigration bill will return to the House of Commons most probably the week beginning 9 May. Please email your MP immediately asking them to support this amendment, which will ask the Government to resettle “a specified number” of children in consultation with local councils.

A very good article 'Fresh proposal to help child refugees stranded in Europe tabled' on the Guardian website can be found here

You can watch Yvette Cooper's excellent mini speech at #PMQs calling on the Prime Minister to accept child refugees here
