Results 1–20 of 60 for windrush speaker:Diane Abbott

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Diane Abbott: I need to make progress, because I must leave time for those on the Treasury Bench. On the question of Windrush, the Government need to understand just how disappointed and frightened the Windrush victims are. It is almost as if, because they are an elderly cohort, the Government feel that if they string this out—[Interruption.] That is what they feel; go and meet some of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Victims: Compensation (10 Jun 2019)

Diane Abbott: The Minister has to begin to acknowledge communities’ grave concerns about the Windrush compensation scheme as it stands. They think that it is not working. She also needs to bear in mind that this is an ageing cohort, who will probably need more support on average than a cohort that is more mixed in age. The Home Secretary told the House in April last year that we “will do whatever it...

Windrush Compensation Scheme (9 Apr 2019)

Diane Abbott: I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) on securing this important urgent question. The whole House knows that the Windrush generation was let down by successive Governments, Labour and Conservative, but with this derisory compensation scheme, the Windrush generation has been let down once again. I draw it to the attention of the House that although I did get...

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Diane Abbott: ...his colleagues for the advice he has provided. I would like to say at this point that none of the delays in this process is attributable to him. We have to remember in this House how much pride the Windrush generation took in being British. We have to remember that they came here in good faith under passports which indicated to them that they were indeed British. There are all the...

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Diane Abbott: I am grateful to the Speaker. Let me say finally that there are some in this House who are the children of the Windrush generation. Whether we are on the Front Benches or the Back Benches, and whether we are in opposition or in government, we will not rest until that generation, one of the bravest generations, gets the justice to which it is entitled.

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

Diane Abbott: Rather than trying to score the political points, the public would want the Home Secretary to move much faster in sorting out the Windrush scandal and to look further into its effects, because persons from the Caribbean were not the only Commonwealth cohort affected. Unless the Home Secretary moves faster and with more will, other cohorts of persons from all parts of the former British empire...

Immigration and Social Security Co-Ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (28 Jan 2019)

Diane Abbott: Above all, the consequence of the Windrush scandal was that a whole generation of people who came here after the war to what they thought of as the mother country, to rebuild that mother country, were humiliated and degraded. I think that that generation and their relatives and friends would appreciate a more serious contemplation of this issue in the House tonight.

Future Immigration (19 Dec 2018)

Diane Abbott: ...Secretary really think that the Home Office has the capacity to change its established ways of working and its unofficial targets, which it was clearly working towards and helped contribute to the Windrush scandal? Does he accept that on immigration, he cannot have it both ways? He cannot talk about an outward-looking, global Britain and meeting the needs of society and employers, while...
