Action call over perception of refugees and asylum seekers

Ministers should try to improve people's views of refugees and asylum seekers, a group of AMs has said.

The communities committee wants a publicity campaign like one in Scotland which encourages people to "have a cup of tea with a refugee".

Committee chairman John Griffiths said there was a misconception refugees get "better provision" than others.

A Welsh Government spokeswoman said it was committed to helping refugees "rebuild their lives".
