Board of Deputies supports calls for Windrush inquiry

Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush and President-Elect Marie van der Zyl have supported calls for an inquiry into wrongful deportations of members of the Windrush generation.

They said: “The news that 63 members of the Windrush generation could have been wrongfully deported from our country is deeply distressing to anyone who cares about justice and the traditional British sense of ‘fair play’. As we said in April, the Windrush generation have contributed a great deal to Britain, and they are undoubtedly part of the fabric of our nation. Today, we support David Lammy’s call for a public inquiry to get to the bottom of how these British citizens were deported.”
