Commenting ahead of the publication of reformed EU refugee laws, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said

"Any proposals to strengthen Dublin regulations are welcome but do not alone do enough to confront the humanitarian crisis in Europe.

"It will take time to make Dublin more effective and efficient and this is something we simply don't have. That is why the PM must act now and offer safety to 3,000 vulnerable refugee children who are unaccompanied in Europe. Many Conservative MPs are u-turning on their vote against this last week, and it is time for the PM to join them."
