Meeting with Windrush citizens in Parliament

On 1st May, as Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Race, I hosted an event for Windrush citizens to discuss the uncertain status of Commonwealth citizens in the UK. We heard from many Windrush citizens who shared their story, as well as Guardian reporter Amelia Gentleman, Barbados High Commissioner Guy Hewitt, the Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott. The Minister of State for Immigration, Caroline Nokes MP, came personally to apologise to the members of the Windrush generation present.
