Questions to the Mayor of London — Support for EU Londoners: Support for EU Londoners (28 Jun 2019)

Sadiq Khan: Thank you for your question. It is difficult, unless you have had a chance to speak to those affected or experts, to understand the scale of the anxiety.

Deidre Brock: At the end of her career, will the Prime Minister take time to reflect that her creation of the hostile environment led to the Windrush scandal, a catalogue of errors in immigration decisions, people feeling unsafe in their own homes, an atmosphere of distrust and suspicion, and to xenophobia, which has damaged our relations with our European neighbours?

EU/British Citizens’ Rights (18 Jun 2019)

Robin Walker: ...needs to constitutive rather than declaratory. With the best will in the world, a purely declaratory scheme risks causing confusion and difficulty for people further down the line.

We are continuing to...

Theatre Market - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

Lord Foster of Bath: .... Lenny Henry is doing some excellent work to make this happen. I am sure we all welcome productions such as the National Theatre’s version of Andrea Levy’s novel Small Island, telling the Windrush story. While a lot of good things have been going on, helped in part by the theatre tax relief introduced by the coalition Government in 2014, it is difficult to know what impact they are...

Jenny Gilruth: Today’s report from the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee says that the United Kingdom’s settlement scheme for EU citizens risks another Windrush scandal.
