Lyn Brown: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what changes have been made to immigration policy as a result of the Windrush Lessons Learned Review.

TOEIC Visa Cancellations — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Lyn Brown: ...of a knock on the door. I could go on—I have a number of cases—but time is short. I am not the first to compare the dreadful mishandling of the TOEIC cases to the scandalous mistreatment of the Windrush generation. There are differences, but in both cases people have been separated from their families, detained and deported, their assets are stripped away and their sources of income...

Immigration Rules: Paragraph 322(5) (13 Jun 2018)

Lyn Brown: our Government? That is basically what he plans to do. He has been worn down and is going, despite the pending judicial review. It is hard to look at cases such as those of Muhammad, Sadeque and Windrush and not conclude that this Government are chasing an arbitrary immigration target, regardless of the needs of our economy—or, indeed, the NHS or any sense of decency we might still...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: West Ham, working for a charity helping refugees and migrants, so what an irony that in March she was fired from that job because she could not prove her right to work. The lesson of the Windrush scandal is that the hostile environment strategy is, in and of itself, a breach of trust. The betrayal of people like Gem and Jessica will not end until that strategy changes. The hostile...

Windrush (2 May 2018)

Lyn Brown: ...her from a message that the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants has placed in my inbox: “Nothing that the government has announced today in parliament will address the root causes of the Windrush scandal—namely the ‘hostile environment’ policy. Hostility is still very much in play, the government still plans to roll Right to Rent out further to Scotland, Wales and Northern...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Lyn Brown: ...(Ms Abbott), who has so effectively led on the issue from the Front Bench. Let me make it clear: this issue is personal to me, because, like many Londoners, I have family who are part of the Windrush generation. Lucy and her husband Cecil came here to help to rebuild Britain. Lucy is a fabulous, dedicated and caring nurse who worked in the NHS for her whole life, and Cecil is a skilled...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Lyn Brown: ...has been crushed. They, their children and their grandchildren feel betrayed. It is not just my family who are angered by that betrayal; many of my constituents, whether they have family among the Windrush generation or not, believe that this Prime Minister’s policies have betrayed a generation of their friends, neighbours and families. I do not know how many of my constituents have been...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Lyn Brown: ...assess in monetary terms, so I ask the Minister to ensure that whoever is appointed to run the compensation scheme is encouraged to think long and hard about the lifetime impact of these losses. The Windrush generation undoubtedly made a huge contribution to rebuilding our country; many of them also fought in the war. They came at the Government’s invitation, stayed at the Government’s...
