MPs condemn Home Office over new Windrush failings
Report highlights failure to support those affected, with systemic problems still evident
The Home Office is making life-changing decisions based on incorrect data and, despite the Windrush scandal, remains complacent about its systemic and cultural problems, a damning parliamentary report has concluded.
The department’s failure to monitor the impact of hostile environment policies on vulnerable members of society represented a dereliction of duty, said the public accounts committee report. The department showed a “lack of care” in ignoring repeated warnings that its policies were causing acute problems for older long-term UK residents without documents.
