As evacuations are set to begin in Aleppo, Lord Roger Roberts of Llandudno and President of Lib Dems Seekers of Sanctuary, said;
“The tragedy of Aleppo is beyond grief.
“With an evacuation underway today I urge, as president of the Lib Dems Seekers of Sanctuary, the UK government to organise immediately an airlift and to fulfil its pledge to welcome 20,000 Syrian Refugees.
"We must not wait until the end of this parliament to meet that obligation. The time to act is today.
“I urge everyone concerned to act today by bringing pressure to bear on parliamentarians to ensure that UK acts immediately.”
