The "Dubs Amendment" to allow in 3,000 unaccompanied children WAS PASSED in the Lords by 306 to 204 this afternoon!!

Amazing news!!! - though now it's back to the Commons where it will face severe opposition from the Government.

Calais Action will be back in Parliament tomorrow to discuss the outcome and how we can continue to campaign on this issue - we'll keep you posted!! For now, THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who have spent your time lobbying peers and raising awareness of this issue.
