Devolution and Growth Across Britain (3 Jun 2015)

Helen Hayes: ...public art gallery in England, Dulwich Picture Gallery; the first London teaching hospital, King’s College hospital; and the home to the first large Caribbean community to settle in London, the Windrush generation.

Recall of MPs Bill: Second Reading (17 Dec 2014)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...in the Second Reading debate today. I am sorry that my noble friend Lord Temple-Morris could not speak in the debate as he was not here at the start. I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Cooper of Windrush, on his excellent maiden speech. Like other noble Lords, I look forward to future contributions from the noble Lord in your Lordships’ House. I saw in his list of achievements that he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: New Clause 1 — Education Act 1996 (20 May 2013)

David Lammy: ...that long ago, in deliberating on matters of race, this House made changes to its position and sought to end the discrimination of minority people, many of whom had arrived in this country in the Windrush generation. My father was one of those people, and he certainly recollected a period in his lifetime when it was commonplace for those applying for a job or housing or meeting certain...

Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012 — Motion to Take Note (8 Nov 2012)

Baroness Benjamin: ...throughout. It was by far the most diverse and inclusive Olympic and Paralympic Games ever and I feel so proud to say that. I met some of the volunteers who took part in the opening ceremony in the "Windrush" display. Their enthusiasm and euphoria was infectious; they felt they had been given an unbelievable opportunity and an experience of a lifetime. One said, "It's like a dream come...

Baroness Benjamin: ...extravaganza. It has become a well established and much loved instrument played by many British school children today. Calypso music was introduced to London by the arrival in 1948 of two "Empire Windrush" passengers, Lord Kitchener and Lord Beginner, who wrote and sang calypsos about the Caribbean immigrants' experiences here in Britain at that time, with songs such as "London Is the...

Schools: History — Debate (20 Oct 2011)

Baroness Benjamin: .... Yes, this all happened here in Britain less than a lifetime ago. I have always gone to great lengths to explain to anyone who will listen that immigration to this country did not start with the Windrush, as many people seem to believe, and as the media continue constantly to reinforce. In 17th-century paintings by Hogarth we see the diverse nature of London, and yet it is rarely...

Tackling Poverty in the UK (10 Jun 2010)

Teresa Pearce: ...truly call a feminist. Like many other urban areas, Erith and Thamesmead has a long and proud multicultural tradition. It is an area where people come to settle. One of our primary schools is called Windrush, in honour of those who came from the West Indies in the '50s and '60s to help Britain rebuild after the war. Many Vietnamese boat people also put down roots in the area in the 1970s....

Air Passenger Duty (Caribbean) (26 Jan 2010)

Roger Godsiff: ...and in the rest of the United Kingdom. The Afro-Caribbean community has been an integral part of the life of the United Kingdom since the first large-scale arrivals on these shores on the Windrush in 1948. Not long ago, we saw the 60th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush, and the Government rightly recognised it and the continued contribution of the Afro-Caribbean community to the...

Bailiffs (Repeals and Amendment): Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [ Lords] (2 Jun 2009)

Keith Vaz: ...open and honest with the House. We know there are problems. We know that the public will not accept unlimited immigration—the kind of immigration that brought me and the people who arrived on the Windrush into this country. Those days are, of course, completely gone. I am also thinking of those of my constituents whom Idi Amin expelled from Uganda and who came here from east Africa;...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) - Clause 5 (19 May 2009)

Greg Hands: The right hon. Gentleman mentioned employees of the Crown and various other categories. Will other public sector employees be included? For example, I mentioned the SS Windrush generation who came over and were employed predominantly by London Transport. Will employees who have since gone back to their home country be covered?
