Britain to home 15,000 refugees using foreign aid budget fund

Britain is set to use some of its ?9bn ($13bn) foreign aid budget in order to home thousands of Syrian refugees in the UK, Chancellor George Osborne has announced. It is reported that David Cameron is preparing to brief MPs on plans to accept between 10,000-15,000 refugees from the war-torn country, ahead of planned vote for airstrikes against Islamic State (Isis) in the Commons.

Osborne said the government putting into place a "fundamental rethink" of the foreign aid budget, so it is used in a way which affects Britain, not just "the rest of the world". Osborne said the recent image of the drowned three-year-old Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi on a beach in Turkey had "brought home to the British public, and indeed politicians, the sheer horror of what's going on," he said.

During an interview on BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Osborne added: "Britain is going to approach this crisis with a head as well as a heart. In the short term we are going to take more refugees, but not in a way that encourages them on to these dangerous boats. In the longer term we need a fundamental rethink of our aid policy. So yes, we support reducing poverty but we also direct our additional aid spending to these failed states, to this refugee crisis, to the big threats facing Britain.

"The foreign aid budget can provide the support in the first year for these refugees, could help the local councils with things like housing costs. We will deploy the foreign aid budget to help with the costs of these refugees."
