Home Secretary Theresa May has told the House of Commons the scale of the Syrian refugee crisis is "immense".
She said: "The greatest contribution we can make is to work to end the conflict altogether, using UK diplomacy and our international influence to support the negotiations taking place in Geneva."
She added the the Government's goal was that of a "peaceful settlement" and that the £600m already given to the Syrian relief effort was the UK's largest ever response to a humanitarian crisis.
