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

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".

We also spoke to Anthony Bryan, a victim of the Windrush scandal, who had lived and worked in the UK for 50 years when he was wrongly classified as an illegal immigrant and almost deported.

Johnson under fire over curbs on MPs outside interests

MPs have backed the government’s approach to curbing MPs’ outside interests, after Labour’s proposals were voted down in the House of Commons.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer used one of his party’s designated opposition day debates in the Commons to put forward a motion setting out his party’s plans for banning MPs from paid political consultancy work.

But in a bid to steal a march on the opposition, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced he backed such a ban and put down an amendment setting out the government’s own approach.
