Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has written to the Home Secretary outlining the organisation’s concerns at the Government’s ending of the Dubs amendment scheme to admit child refugees.

He wrote: “Many in our community came to the UK as frightened and vulnerable young children – some on the kindertransport – and were welcomed into this country. We expect that other communities who are in need receive the same treatment. We therefore urge you to reconsider the number of children you are able to help.”

The text of the letter is attached here.
