Lucy speaks about the Humanitarian Crisis in the Middle East

In her speech, Lucy spoke about Britain's proud history of welcoming refugees.  She highlighted that when we offer a safe haven in Britain we also need to ensure that those who come have an opportunity to integrate into our society: providing access to learning the language and access to study, to work and to medical facilities. 

Lucy also called on other countries to live up to Britain's commitment to give 0.7% of its budget to foreign aid.
