Daniel Zeichner MP said: “The government has shamelessly described this crisis as being about economic migration, when what we are witnessing is a humanitarian crisis with many thousands of displaced people needing sanctuary. It is always important to distinguish carefully between asylum and economic migration – they are very different issues.  At times of acute crisis, national leaders need to rise above short-term narrow interest – sadly, our prime minister is failing this crucial test. As Yvette Cooper has rightly said, it should not be beyond each council in the country to take 10 refugee families from Syria, and I am sure that the people of Cambridge would want our Government to respond positively.”
