Mayor says London will face up to refugee 'responsibilities'

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has said London will face up to its "moral responsibilities" to take refugees, but stressed the city must not become a "magnet" for economic migrants.

A spokesman for the mayor told ITV News London:

We should take people fleeing persecution and those plainly in fear for their lives. London will of course face up to its moral responsibilities. But we must not become a magnet or pole of attraction for economic migrants.

It is also time to look harder at what can be done in Syria to solve the problem at source. Of course intervention has not worked in Iraq or Libya. But no one could say that non intervention was working in Syria.

– Boris Johnson
