Lord Dubs came to the UK in 1939, one of 669 children rescued from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia through Kinderstransport. He is a tireless advocate of refugee rights, serving in various roles in voluntary organisations such as the Refugee Council. Last year, he championed and won cross-party approval for the Dubs amendment to the Immigration Act of 2016. The amendment compelled the UK government to resettle and support unaccompanied refugee children from other countries in Europe. He continues to fight for the implementation of the provision.
