All 9 results for windrush speaker:Thangam Debbonaire

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (19 Dec 2019)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...and intellectual exchange that our membership of the EU has brought. Again, I would like to have seen that in the Queen’s Speech. I will do everything I can to make sure that the Government’s Windrush compensation scheme actually does what it needs to do. Unfortunately there are people in Bristol West who have really suffered because of the Windrush scandal. Despite my lobbying and the...

Business of the House (4 Jul 2019)

Thangam Debbonaire: The injustice of the Windrush scandal continues. Many of the people in my caseload have still not had their cases sorted out. I do not know anyone who has been successful in claiming compensation, because the required level of evidence is so ridiculous. I also know people who have been promised help that has not been delivered. To add insult to injury, one of my constituents, who was kept...

EU/British Citizens’ Rights (18 Jun 2019)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...I understand that, but my EU constituents have seen how the immigration service works when it is at its worst, rather than at its best. They have seen the egregious excesses of the treatment of the Windrush generation and they have seen how asylum seekers have been treated, and they are not confident that their cases will be treated fairly. I hope the Minister can reassure us—he is a...

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

Thangam Debbonaire: I am aware of the time limit, so I am afraid I will not give way. This immigration system’s design should have learned and inwardly digested the lessons from the Windrush system. It should have involved the nation—leavers and remainers, those concerned about immigration and those concerned that it treats neither long-term legal migrants nor newly arrived people fleeing persecution...

Points of Order: [7th Allotted Day] (11 Jan 2019)

Thangam Debbonaire: ...on family occasions when a visit visa is refused, and the Home Office admits that severe staffing shortages have led to a sheer, large backlog of rising numbers of claims. There has also been the Windrush scandal, in which people who have the legal right to be here were treated appallingly. And this Government propose to put more people into the same system. I would like to think that...
