We are currently carrying out a public consultation on the Windrush Compensation Scheme. Details of the consultation, including how to respond, are available at www.gov.uk/Windrush
We will be ensuring there is transparency over the Windrush Compensation Scheme. No one applying to the Scheme will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
We have identified one private law claim, which had not been considered at Ministerial level, for compensation of unlawful detention, pre-dating the Windrush Compensation Scheme, involving a member of the Windrush generation, where an NDA was signed. This is not untypical of litigation cases; for many years, and under successive governments, such clauses have been used from time to time in a wide range of litigation and the terms of such settlements are reached on the basis of agreement between the parties.
