Barry has written to Priti Patel, the Home Secretary regarding the Windrush Compensation Scheme. It is unacceptable that only 5% of victims of the Windrush scandal have received any sort of compensation.
In Barry’s letter, he references a constituent who has lived in the UK for 58 years and has incurred direct losses amounting to £37,165.33. These are all directly attributable to the failure of the Home Office to recognise his status as a British Citizen and his right to work in the UK. He is still yet to receive a penny in compensation.
