To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress they have made in determining the compensation scheme for victims of the hostile environment policy towards the Windrush generation; and whether the scheme will cover any losses in connection with (1) employment opportunities, (2) housing, (3) physical, psychological and mental ill health problems, and (4) meeting Home Office immigration status requirements.

The compensation scheme for those of the Windrush generation that might have been affected is in the process of being established.

The call for evidence for that scheme ended on 8 June and the Home Office are now preparing to launch the next stage of consultation, working with affected communities. The scheme will be set up as soon as possible after we have consulted on the design and scope of what should be included.
