"The Commons has rejected an attempt by Labour to reinstate child refugee protection rights in the Brexit bill."
See: MPs reject Labour's call to reinstate child refugee pledge (BBC News, link):
"MPs voted 348 to 252 against the amendment, which would have guaranteed the right of unaccompanied child refugees to be reunited with family living in the UK after Brexit.
The pledge was included in a previous version of the Brexit bill, but was removed after the Tories' election win.
The government said it had 'a proud record of helping vulnerable children.'"
