The review was launched to understand the key legislative, policy and operational decisions, and other factors, that led to members of the Windrush generation becoming subject to measures designed for illegal immigrants.

It called for the Home Office to undergo a programme of major cultural change and a full review of the hostile environment policy.

It also recommended improvements to community and stakeholder engagement, including the appointment of a Migrants’ Commissioner to speak up for those affected by the asylum and immigration system.
