Joint Committee on Human Rights
Report and Government response published.
Liberty is a core right. An individual should not be deprived of their liberty without good reason and adequate safeguards. In our work on cases of wrongful detention of members of the Windrush generation, we took the example of two individuals to seek to understand why they had been wrongfully detained.
The experience of detention is traumatising and debilitating, as shown by the evidence we heard from these two members of the Windrush generation, who were detained wrongfully, despite the fact that they had leave to remain in the UK, under the Immigration Act 1971.
Evidence given by Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, Secretary of State, and Glyn Williams, Director-General, Border Immigration and Citizenship System, Home Office.
