Priti Patel – 2020 Comments on Windrush Report

Text of comments made by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, on 21 July 2020.

I am driving change to implement the important findings of the Lessons Learned review to make sure nothing like this can happen again.

The action I have taken will ensure cultural change at the department, leading to more diverse leadership.

I want the Windrush generation to have no doubt that I will reform the culture of the department so it better represents all of the communities we serve.
