There is no evidence to indicate that any of these individuals were in the UK before 1973 and therefore potentially entitled to status under the 1971 Immigration Act.

Any individual who believes they are protected under the provisions of the 1971 Immigration Act is able to contact the Windrush Taskforce, who will help to identify their current status.
