The following position statement has been supported by councillors in Denbighshire this morning, following a discussion about the situation regarding refugees in Syria.
The statement, submitted by Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire, reads:
“The tragedy of the Syrian refugee crises has touched all of us. Denbighshire County Council is keen to join with the Welsh and UK governments and others to coordinate an approach to fulfil our responsibility and play our part in providing assistance and humanitarian support to those refugees displaced as a result of the war in Syria. This could include accommodating a number of families, with appropriate Government support."
