First Minister calls for UK to 'rediscover backbone' in migration crisis

First Minister Carwyn Jones AM says Wales 'stands ready' to play a part in responding to the European migration crisis, but 'leadership' is needed from the UK Government.

Speaking as leader of the Welsh Labour party, Mr Jones said he supports the UK Labour party's call to accept 10,000 refugees.

Wales stands ready to play its full part in responding to this unfolding humanitarian tragedy, just as we always have done in the past. However, these are non-devolved issues and we desperately need to see some leadership from the UK Government on the matter.

This is not part of some diplomatic chess match, we are talking about human suffering on a massive scale. Sadly this Tory Government has once again abandoned its international responsibilities. They urgently need to rediscover some backbone and their moral compass - backing Labour's call to accept 10,000 refugees would be a good start and I offer my full support to this approach.
