Christine Jardine - Ukraine update

The response from constituents to the crisis in Ukraine continues to be extraordinary.

Christine said, "Just recently I was able to visit the welcome hub based at RBS Gogarburn which is providing fantastic support for families arriving after long and harrowing journeys.

"One family I met had spent almost 30 hours on a coach and it was heartwarming to see their small children able to relax and enjoy playing in the sunshine after the trauma which has blighted their young lives.

"At the same time helping the dozens of constituents who have volunteered with the Homes For Ukraine Scheme has been hugely frustrating as we have tried to navigate the chaos of the Home Office visa process.

"Unacceptable delays in the administration and endless hours trying to get through to the Home Office have meant the generosity of so many Edinburgh West residents is being failed by bureaucracy."
