Manchester should welcome hundreds of Syrian refugees, says MP Lucy Powell
Manchester should welcome in hundreds of refugees fleeing war-torn Syria, says one of the city’s MP.
David Cameron is coming under increasing pressure over his response to Europe’s migrant crisis.
Lucy Powell, MP for Manchester Central, has now written to him saying the country has a ‘moral obligation’ to act after she met with members of the city’s Syrian community.
She told the M.E.N. Manchester must ‘absolutely’ be part of that effort.
“I think the vast majority of Mancunians would welcome playing their part,” she said.
