Joint Committee on Human Rights
Oral evidence session ongoing.
Many people moved to the UK from the Commonwealth before 1973 – often referred to as “the Windrush Generation”, and in this call we seek to include evidence from immigrants who may have been effected from all over the Commonwealth.
Such people spent decades in the UK confident of their legal status because, under the 1971 Immigration Act, all Commonwealth citizens already living in the UK were given indefinite leave to remain.
However, following changes in legislation and government policy, many have faced serious difficulties in proving that they are residing in the UK legally.
Evidence given by Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, Secretary of State, and Glyn Williams, Director-General, Border Immigration and Citizenship System, Home Office.
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
