She told the House of Commons: "Our country has a proud tradition of providing protection to those in need. And where there are particularly difficult cases of vulnerable refugees, who are at grave risk, we are ready to look at those cases."
She added: "The Government will be launching a new programme to provide emergency sanctuary in the UK for displaced Syrians who are particularly vulnerable."
