LABOUR has criticised the Prime Minister’s plan to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees in the UK by 2020, claiming 4,000 a year ‘is not enough’.

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper raised her concerns during an emergency debate in the House of Commons yesterday.

They came after PM David Cameron announced on Monday that the UK will accept up to 20,000 refugees from camps near Syria. Ms Cooper said a ‘bigger plan’ was needed, warning the migrant crisis was ‘not going away’.
