The Department is reviewing all immigration detentions, dating back to 2002, of Caribbean Commonwealth nationals now aged over 45 (i.e. born before 01/01/1973), to establish whether any could have entered the UK prior to 1973 and therefore might be protected by the Immigration Act 1971. As the Home Secretary stated to the Joint Committee on Human Rights on 6 June 2018, this work is due to be completed by the middle of July.

The Home Secretary has committed to regularly updating the Home Affairs Select Committee on the findings of this review.
