Lord Dubs, the man who put forward the amendment to the Immigration Act enabling the relocation of refugee children, on Friday accused the government of stalling on its commitments.
"I am deeply saddened that despite repeated calls from me and others, the government still seems to be dragging its feet on the commitments it made when the amendment in my name was accepted,” he told the BBC Radio 4.
He added that the government has no excuse for any further delays and that Prime Minister Theresa May and Home Secretary Amber Rudd must act immediately.

According to a July 2016 census by the NGO Help Refugees, the camp was inhabited by 7,307 people, 761 of whom were minors.
