Ian Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - This report correctly notes the legal and moral duties that the EU and its Member States have with regard to refugees. It is vital that people with refugee status are able to integrate fully into the labour market at the earliest opportunity. The UK's recent referendum saw the Leave side using refugees as part of the wider racist discourse against the EU. This report shows a sharp contrast to those attitudes and I was happy to support it.
