Given the scale of the Syrian crisis, and the suffering of the people, I can announce we will provide resettlement for thousands more Syrian refugees.
We will take Syrians from the refugee camps. This provides them with a direct and safe route to the UK, rather than risking the hazardous journey which has cost so many lives.
We will discuss how best to design these schemes and the numbers we will take with NGOs and partners. We will set out further details next week.
We have given £900m of aid to help Syrian refugees – the second biggest bilateral donor. And we are funding shelter, food, water and vital medical supplies for millions of desperate Syrian refugees.
