Alison is the Chair of the All Parliamentary Group for Syria.
Following the government announcing that it will end the Dubs Scheme which called for more unaccompanied refugees to enter the UK Alison led a debate on this. She urged the government to re-open the scheme which was put forward by Labour Peer Lord Alfred Dubbs. Alison has received contact from her constituents asking her to put pressure on the government to think again about the closure of this scheme. The government has previously showed support for the Dubs scheme so their recent announcement has come as a big disappointment to those who support Lord Dub's amendment.
