Committee to question Permanent Secretary on the work of the Home Office

30 June 2020

The Home Affairs Committee takes evidence from the Permanent Secretary in the Home Office, Matthew Rycroft, on Wednesday 1 July in a wide-ranging session examining the work of the Home Office.

Scope of the session

In his first appearance before the Select Committee since his appointment, the Permanent Secretary will be questioned on his department's administration of key business areas. This will include the Home Office's response to Windrush, including the administration of the compensation scheme as well as wider cultural change following the findings of the Williams review.

The Committee will ask a range of questions relating to its recent inquiries and reports. This is likely to cover areas including immigration, the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, major programmes, the use of data and Home Office expenditure and spending plans.
