Bishop of Durham asks about refugee support

The Bishop of Durham asked a question about government support for refugee transportation on 15th March 2022, during a debate on support for refugees from Ukraine:

The Lord Bishop of Durham: My Lords, a family is named in Moldova, Romania or Poland and has been sponsored by me or someone else but does not have the money for transportation. If it is all agreed on all sides, will the Government help with transportation?

Lord Sharpe of Epsom (Con): I have just answered a question along those lines, so I am sorry to disappoint the right reverend Prelate, but I cannot agree that at this point. However, the scheme has been in operation for only 24 hours, so let it develop and I am sure these questions will be dealt with.
