Windrush (4 Sep 2018)

Edward Davey: The Home Secretary was right to apologise to the victims of the Windrush scandal, but if the Government want to end their hostile environment, which led to the Windrush scandal, is not it time to abolish their net migration target?

Windrush Scheme (5 Feb 2019)

Edward Davey: Is not one of the lessons of the Windrush that when people have lived in our country for 20, 30 or 40 years, the idea that they should be deported if they do not have precisely the correct documentation is inhumane, and is not supported by the wider public? In the light of the Windrush scandal, will the Home Secretary review the unrealistic and draconian documentation requirements imposed on...

Windrush Children (Immigration Status) (16 Apr 2018)

Edward Davey: Will the Home Secretary clarify definitively whether this new dedicated team helping the Windrush generation will be accessible to all Commonwealth citizens facing similar problems?

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Edward Davey: Given that the hostile environment is clearly one cause of the Windrush scandal, have the Government accepted the recent High Court judgment against right-to-rent checks?

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Edward Davey: ...hon. and learned Lady is making a powerful case that the Prime Minister has many questions to answer. One of the key questions she needs to answer is, when was she told about the problems facing the Windrush generation? Was it when she was Home Secretary or Prime Minister?

It is rapidly becoming clear that the same mistake is being made in relation to this compensation scheme, so will the Minister urgently review not just the...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Edward Davey: ...Cooper), those are simply not in the Bill. It is entirely wrong for the House to be asked to pass a Bill that does not contain real safeguards for the people involved, given what happened in the Windrush cases.

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Edward Davey: The right hon. Lady is absolutely right, and it is the Windrush generation who should be in our minds above all. The right hon. Lady mentioned the need—this will be dependent on the EU negotiations—to ensure that we have access to data for national security and for fighting crime. That is in the Government’s interests as they negotiate Brexit, in particular with respect to the rights of...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Edward Davey: ...It talks about transparency and openness, and that is where we have to go. I hope the Minister will say a little more about who it is we are helping, as it is currently too vague for my liking. The Windrush generation? Commonwealth citizens? Can we be more specific? We need to know exactly who will be helped by the unit and the new rules. Unless we do that, we will find other injustices....
