Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: What steps he is taking to compensate victims of the Windrush scandal.
Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: This gross injustice with respect to the Windrush scandal is not an accident or a one-off; it is a direct result of the Government’s hostile environment policy.

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what assessment the Government has made of the effect of denying social security support to people affected by the Windrush scandal on their (a) rent arrears, (b) homelessness, and (c) personal debt.
Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: Studies from the University of California have shown that such schemes are merely a tool for voter suppression. Does my hon. Friend agree? As the Windrush scandal has aptly highlighted, many people within the UK do not even have one piece of ID, let alone several.
