Scottish Parliament: European Union Citizens’ Rights (12 Nov 2019)

Ben Macpherson: ...severe, because registration under a declaratory scheme would involve confirming rights, rather than acquiring rights through application, as is the case under the current settlement scheme. The Windrush scandal demonstrates clearly the dangers of failing to safeguard the rights of EU citizens. Removing the need to make an application, and consequently avoiding the threat of refusal, would...

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 — Black History Month and racial inequalities: Black History Month and racial inequalities (6 Nov 2019)

Jennette Arnold: Does the Mayor agree with me that, as we come towards the end of another great Black History Month, it is unacceptable that the grandchildren of the Windrush generation in London who have graduated from university continue to experience higher unemployment and lower pay than white graduates?

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Work of the Home Office (4 Nov 2019)

Priti Patel: ...by up to 33% in May 2019. We granted protection to 18,519 people in year ending June 2019 (up 29% from the previous year). The Government deeply regrets what happened to some members of the Windrush generation and has made it clear that responding to this is a priority. On 24 May 2018 the Home Office announced the Windrush Scheme, which ensures that people affected directly, their...

Tributes to the Speaker’s Chaplain (31 Oct 2019)

Valerie Vaz: ...am sorry she is not here in the Chamber, in her usual place—a heartfelt farewell. Reverend Rose arrived in the United Kingdom to join the Church Army as an 18-year-old young woman, displaying the Windrush generation’s adaptability. It did not take long for Reverend Rose to flourish, and in 1994 she was ordained to the priesthood, at the point where women had only recently been allowed...

Representation of the People (Annual Canvass) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (31 Oct 2019)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...Lords committee, precisely on this. Perhaps the noble Baroness, Lady Finn, and I might then return to the subject on which we battled with a number of people some years ago. We have seen with the Windrush scandal, and may see again on the question of settled status for EU citizens, that people for whom various government agencies must have held data were unable to demonstrate that they had...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Grahame Morris: ...thinking about other common strands in this Parliament, where Ministers failed to accept responsibility for the consequences of the decisions. We call it culpability, don’t we?

EU Settlement Scheme - Question (23 Oct 2019)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...proof of status. I really cannot understand what the noble Lord is saying. He talks about registration: I presume he means a declaratory system. In a declaratory system, we have seen the lessons of Windrush: in years to come people might not be able to prove their status, so I think the EU settlement scheme is the best route forward.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Oct 2019)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: ...these would include restriction of freedom of movement. I agree that we need reform of the Home Office Immigration Rules, because they are totally unfit for purpose. For instance, this year we saw Windrush remembered, and only last week heard that a lass born in Glasgow 30 years ago now faces deportation. The whole thing is agony for so many people. They are here and yet the Home Office...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill (22 Oct 2019)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...us owes our health to those people who work in our NHS, whether they come from Commonwealth countries, other countries or the European Union. They should not be put through the strain either of the Windrush hostile environment or the sword of Damocles hanging over many at the moment because they know they have only five years’ definite stay in this country. I will just remind the House...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I have chosen to speak today in order to raise a pressing devolved affairs issue, but I turn first to some other matters. The proposed immigration Bill will be the third such Bill before your Lordships’ House since I joined it. The two previous ones created the legislative underpinnings for Mrs May’s really hostile but now compliant environment. I do not see any signs that this...
