Marsha de Cordova – 2021 Comments on Independent Windrush Committee

The comments made by Marsha De Cordova, the Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, on 20 June 2021.

This injustice cannot continue. The Windrush Compensation Scheme must be placed under independent leadership away from the Home Office so that people can finally receive the compensation they deserve.

The Windrush scandal was an example of racial injustice, which is still experienced by many Black Caribbean people across British society.

That is why the next Labour government will introduce a Race Equality Act, to systematically tackle structural and institutional racism.
