The Prime Minister made a statement on the military action against terrorists in Syria, which I firmly support, and on the humanitarian action to help refugees, which is the right thing to do.
We should not turn our backs on those fleeing for their lives and we should help genuine asylum seekers, those for whom it would be dangerous to return home. I think we should welcome as many refugees to Crawley as we can. We cannot stand back and do nothing, we all have a moral obligation.
Councillor Martin Stone, Crawley Borough Council (Con, Ifield)
