Priti Patel – 2021 Comments on Windrush Compensation

The comments made by Priti Patel, the Home Secretary, on 1 June 2021.

I am absolutely committed to putting right the terrible injustices faced by the Windrush generation under successive governments.

I have been clear that I will listen to victims and act, which is why I overhauled the Compensation Scheme in December, and we are now seeing the positive impact of those changes on people’s lives with nearly £30 million paid or offered.

I will continue to work tirelessly to make sure that more money continues to be paid more quickly.
