Kingsbarns Community Council's Refugee Initiative

EDM number 1384 in 2017-19, proposed by Stephen Gethins on 12/06/2018.

That this House recognises that Europe is facing the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War; notes that those who have become refugees have had to leave their homes in the worst possible situations and seek sanctuary not out of choice but necessity; agrees that we all have a role to play and therefore congratulates Kingsbarns Community Council, that as part of the conditions to approve a new housing development in the village, asked for two houses be provided for Syrian refugee families if local people do not take up those houses; commends the community that have also undertaken to furnish those houses; and looks forward to welcoming refugees to Kingsbarns in the future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 1 MPs.
