Leader of Cornwall Council issues a statement on the refugee crisis
You cannot watch the news, read the printed, or online media not to see the human tragedy that is the refugee crisis which includes several – war-torn – countries. The Leader of Cornwall Council, Cllr John Pollard has issued a statement as follows:
No-one can fail to have been affected by the scenes we have all witnessed as the refugee crisis has developed over recent days.
Cornwall has a proud record of being welcoming and inclusive and we will play our part in doing whatever we can to help these vulnerable people. I have asked officers to investigate exactly what support can be available and how we can best work with the government.”
I am not sure what support can be given, but it is good that the Council is investigating its options. Though much will depend on what action the Government takes; including the numbers the Government decides to accommodate.
