Windrush: Home Office should no longer run compensation scheme, say MPs

Home Affairs Correspondent

MPs have criticised the way the Windrush compensation scheme operates and called for the Home Office to be stripped of responsibility for running it.

The cross-party Commons Home Affairs Committee said the scheme should be transferred to an independent organisation to increase trust and encourage more applications.

The MPs said the design of the scheme contained the same “bureaucratic insensitivities” that led to the Windrush scandal in the first place, which was a “damning indictment of the Home Office”.
