Together with our coalition partners, we are supporting the Refugee Family Reunion Bill to become law in the UK. If successful, the bill would bring refugee children one step closer to being reunited with their families.
The bill, which has been sponsored by Angus MacNeil MP, and a similar House of Lords bill brought forward by Baroness Hamwee, are currently making their way through Parliament. They still need the approval of the UK Government – and their success is far from certain. We will be following the process closely to ensure refugee children are not denied their right to a family life.
