Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit: Brexit (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...if they miss the deadline. As last week’s official application figures show, they are being let down by a Government that is not doing enough to ensure Europeans do not face a crisis, akin to the Windrush scandal. We know that nearly 2 million of the UK’s EU nationals and their families have not applied for settled status. Polish nationals have the lowest uptake, despite being a large...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit: Brexit (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Absolutely. Look, I still meet now people who were affected by the Windrush scandal and it was a scandal and a disgrace, but my point is this. Put aside the Windrush scandal. We know that the Home Office, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) and the authorities are not the most efficient in the world and, if just one in ten has not registered for whatever reason, in London that is more than 100,000....

Questions to the Mayor of London — Black History Month and racial inequalities: Black History Month and racial inequalities (6 Nov 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...Community Engagement] at the slavery commemoration event was to understand the legacy of not just slavery but some of the consequences of how the British Empire was resolved. You talked about the Windrush generation. We have to be alive to the institutional racism that exists in all major institutions and we are conscious of this, I reassure you. Whenever I have conversations not just with...

Questions to the Mayor of London — We Are All Londoners Event: We Are All Londoners Event (17 Oct 2019)

Questions to the Mayor of London — Legal advice for Londoners with insecure immigration status: Legal advice for Londoners with insecure immigration status (13 Sep 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...process in order to secure their immigration status. City Hall is working with partners including civil society and philanthropic funders to support the advice sector and prevent injustices like Windrush from happening again. This builds on work that City Hall has already done to support young Londoners with insecure immigration status, and European Londoners facing uncertainty about their...

Questions to the Mayor of London — EU settlement scheme: EU settlement scheme (16 Jul 2019)

Sadiq Khan: ...EU Londoners don’t register in time they will be unable to work, rent a home or open a bank account, it is unacceptable that the level of awareness is so low. The Government has already failed the Windrush generation and, worryingly, is on the verge of failing EU citizens who live here too. In addition, EU citizens told me there is a distinct lack of digital support for the most...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Support for EU Londoners: Support for EU Londoners (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you for your question. It is difficult, unless you have had a chance to speak to those affected or experts, to understand the scale of the anxiety. The Chair mentioned the Windrush generation. If you go to the lower ground floor you can see arrival cards, not just EU citizens. We speak to the children of the Windrush generation. The Windrush generation is traumatised in relation to the...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Low Income Londoners Still Welcome: Low Income Londoners Still Welcome (18 Jan 2019)

Sadiq Khan: The Immigration White Paper was a missed opportunity to create a fairer immigration system that learnt the lessons from the Windrush scandal. I have called on the Home Secretary not to introduce the proposed £300,000 cap, and to waive the settled status fee for EU nationals and their families who were resident before the referendum. I am supporting low-income Londoners through the TfL fares...
