Speaking ahead of the private member bill Refugees (family reunion). Refugee rights campaigner and Liberal Democrat Spokesperson, Tim Farron said: “Imagine what set of circumstances might have to happen to your own family that would lead to you becoming permanently separated. Imagine how you would want your family to be treated, fleeing from your country. “Separated refugee children in the UK have overcome threats and danger. They have been split from their families and forced through a terrifying journey by sea and land to Europe – journeys which we know have claimed hundreds of lives. “This Bill will allow them a future with their families and their loved-ones. It will mean children can grow up with their parents where they should be, rather than living with the constant worry about the fate of their families stranded on the other side of the world.” ENDS
