Windrush Scandal

Today I have written to the Home Secretary asking why, two years after the Windrush scandal exposed the wrongful detention and deportation of Commonwealth citizens, the government have still not published the Lessons Learned Review commissioned in May 2018.

Not only have they refused to publish this review but, by scheduling a flight to Jamaica which took place on 11th February, the government have shown they are entirely unwilling to learn the lessons from the Windrush Scandal.

I am calling on the government to immediately suspend all deportations of residents who have been in the UK since childhood and ask them to publish and implement in full the recommendations of the Windrush Lessons Learned Review as a matter of urgency.
