Harriett Baldwin speaks in debate on Windrush Compensation Scheme

10th February 2020

Speaking in a debate on the Windrush Compensation Scheme for those in the Windrush generation who have suffered as a result of being unable to demonstrate their lawful right to live in the UK, Harriett Baldwin asks the Home Secretary how the scheme will be publicised so that everyone entitled can make a claim.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

I welcome the steps my right hon. Friend is taking in this Bill. Will she outline how the measures she has just described are going to be widely publicised, to make sure that everyone who might be entitled to claim under this legislation knows about it?

Priti Patel

I thank my hon. Friend for her question. I will come on to this issue, primarily because our stakeholder advisory group has a very important role to play in it and I will explain why that is shortly. Importantly, we will continue to work with third party stakeholders, such as Citizens Advice, and many other groups that we are engaging with. I am very mindful, of course, that we have to rebuild trust with the communities that have been affected.
