Lord Alfred Dubs
Lord Alfred Dubs is a Labour politician and leading refugee rights advocate. Formerly the MP for Battersea and director of the Refugee Council, Dubs was appointed as a Labour life peer in 1994. In 2016, he sponsored an amendment to the Immigration Act 2016 to offer unaccompanied refugee children safe passage to Britain, having himself arrived in Britain in 1939 as a six-year-old refugee fleeing the Nazis in Czechoslovakia. Dubs is now campaigning to ensure that the main legal routes for refugee children to reach the UK remain open after Brexit.
