Calais Child Refugee Tooth Checks Proposed By David Davies Savaged By Just About Everyone

“I hope British hospitality is not being abused”, he added.

Speaking on BBC Radio Four’s Today programme, he said: “I think we’ve got a right to raise this question and the problem is if we don’t raise this question we allow ourselves to be carried along on a tide of emotion, Lily Allen-style with tears in our eyes. We’re not actually going to be able to help the people who need our help, we’ll just end up quickly exhausting the well of hospitality that exists in Britain.

“People in Britain want to help children but we don’t want to be taken for a  free ride either by people who have somehow got to the front of the queue even though in some cases they clearly look a lot older.”

He added that he did not accept that it was “intrusive” to take an x-ray of someone.
