Spending Round 2019 (4 Sep 2019)

Sajid Javid: .... We have already dropped arbitrary immigration targets. We have recently announced a new, highly flexible fast-track visa for scientists. Today, I am putting funding in place to give victims of the Windrush scandal the compensation that they deserve. This is all part of confirming, once and for all, that Britain will always be open to the world’s brightest and best talent. Nowhere are...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Immigration (11 Jul 2019)

Sajid Javid: The terms of reference for the Windrush Lessons Learned Review set out that the aim was to publish the report by 31 March 2019. On 8 July 2019, the Independent Adviser to the Windrush Lessons Learned Review, Wendy Williams, wrote to me about the timing of her review. The complexity and scale of the work required, and the request for her to also consider the right to rent scheme following the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Immigration (4 Jul 2019)

Sajid Javid: The Government deeply regrets what has happened to some members of the Windrush generation and when I became Home Secretary I made clear that responding to this was a priority. The compensation scheme I launched in April is a key part of this response. The compensation scheme has been open to receive claims since April 2019 and the Home Office is now in a position to start making payments....

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: EU Settlement Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Sajid Javid: The settlement scheme is working incredibly well. To update the House, 800,000 applications have already been made since its launch, with almost 700,000 concluded. The hon. Gentleman mentions Windrush, and if he wants another Windrush, he should continue with the proposal that he just suggested.

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Sajid Javid: ...caused this problem, and it is no good trying to point the finger at one particular Government. The right hon. Lady talked about the EU settlement scheme. It is precisely because of the lessons of Windrush that we need a scheme that cannot just be declaratory in approach. We need to ensure that our EU friends who are here in this country are properly documented. The abiding lesson from...

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Sajid Javid: We will absolute publicise the scheme widely. Indeed, the right hon. Gentleman, who is committed to providing justice for the Windrush generation, can help me by using his Twitter feed, and there are other ways of helping more people to know about this scheme. There will be no non-disclosure agreements under this scheme, and people with criminal convictions are entitled to use it. The details...

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Sajid Javid: The hon. Lady makes a very important point. We want to make sure everyone feels they can, first, come forward to the Windrush scheme itself, in terms of documentation, passports and the work of the taskforce, and, secondly, make claims for compensation. For example, no information relating to those who come forward to the compensation scheme will be supplied to immigration enforcement, or in...

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Sajid Javid: It is precisely because we want to avoid another Windrush situation that it cannot be sufficient just to enshrine rights in law. What is needed with the EU settlement scheme is a proper process of documentation from day one.

Windrush Compensation Scheme (3 Apr 2019)

Sajid Javid: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on the Windrush compensation scheme. Copies of the response to the consultation are available from the Vote Office. The United Kingdom has a proud history of welcoming arrivals from around the world. We have long held open the door to those who want to come and help build a better country, including my parents, for example, or...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Immigration (3 Apr 2019)

Sajid Javid: I have today announced the details of the Windrush compensation scheme. The Government deeply regrets what has happened to some members of the Windrush generation and when I became Home Secretary I made clear that responding to this was a priority. The compensation scheme being launched today is a key part of righting the wrongs experienced by some members of the Windrush generation, under...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Generation: Compensation (25 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: Successive Governments have failed the Windrush generation, but it remains this Government’s priority to put those wrongs right. On 8 February, I issued a written ministerial statement to inform the House that the Government response to the Windrush compensation scheme consultation will set out the details of the scheme along with accompanying guidance and rules. The response will be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Generation: Compensation (25 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: It remains a first priority, which is why since I have been appointed we have helped more than 2,000 people through the Windrush taskforce; created the Windrush scheme; helped almost 3,500 people to apply for citizenship; waived thousands of pounds in costs; and set up an urgent assistance programme for exceptional cases. The hon. Lady is right to raise the compensation scheme. It is hugely...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Windrush Generation: Compensation (25 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: ..., all convicted of serious crimes. He will know that in each of those cases—as I said, they were all foreign national offenders—we took extra care to ensure that none were subject to the Windrush scheme. Every single one arrived after 1 January 1973 and there is no evidence to indicate that any had been here before that date. He will know that, under a law passed by a previous Labour...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: EU Settlement Scheme (25 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: ...need to be a cut-off period at some point, not least because this is about protecting the rights of EU citizens so that as we end freedom of movement there is no possibility that we can have another Windrush-type situation, which she knows was created by successive Governments not properly documenting a change in immigration status for people who were already here. It is important that we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: EU Settlement Scheme (25 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: ..., to ensure that. The right hon. Gentleman makes a suggestion about a declaratory scheme. I say again—this is a very important point—that that is exactly what was done in the ’70s with the Windrush generation and we all have seen the consequences of that all too clearly. They were not designed by anyone; that was the outcome of a declaratory scheme. We cannot have such a situation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (25 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: I am clear that I want the Windrush scheme to be as generous, straightforward and easy to use as possible, and that commitment is shared throughout the Government.

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Immigration (8 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: The Government launched a public consultation on 19 July 2018 seeking views on proposals for a Windrush compensation scheme. I am today updating the House on the progress of the Government’s response to that consultation. Righting the wrongs experienced by the Windrush generation remains one of my top priorities. The consultation period was originally intended to last 12 weeks. I made a...

Windrush Scheme (5 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: Righting the wrongs done to the Windrush generation has been at the forefront of my priorities as Home Secretary. That is why I apologised on behalf of this Government and our predecessors. History shows that members of the Windrush generation, who have done so much to enrich our country, were wrongly caught up in measures designed to tackle illegal migration long before 2010. We all bear...

Windrush Scheme (5 Feb 2019)

Sajid Javid: First of all, let me thank the right hon. Gentleman. At least he has raised this important issue of Windrush—it is good at any time to update the House on this, in many different ways—but I have to take issue with his tone. He does himself no good service—a huge disservice—in the way that he speaks and the tone that he has used to suggest that there is even an ounce of racism in this...
