David Lammy's urgent question on Windrush generation
16 April, 2018, 22:16 | Author: Wade Massey
There is growing unease among politicians about the situation, which has affected an unknown number of people who arrived in the United Kingdom as children, but never formally naturalised or applied for a British passport.
Nokes encouraged those affected to make contact with the Home Office and said the government is determined to help people build up a picture of their life in the United Kingdom even if they might lack the required documents.
They are known as the Windrush generation - a reference to the ship, the Empire Windrush, which brought workers from the West Indies to Britain in 1948.

The announcement came after a cross-party group of 140 MPs wrote to Mrs May calling for an "immediate and effective" response to problems faced by members of the Windrush generation.
"What is going on is grotesque, immoral and inhumane". It is a stain on our nation's conscience and the Prime Minister must act urgently to right this historic wrong. The passengers on the Windrush were taking advantage of the 1948 British Nationality Act, which gave the status of citizenship of the United Kingdom and Colonies (CUKC status) to all subjects in the country's Empire.
"That these individuals are being treated with such contempt, disrespect and lack of dignity is a national disgrace", said David Lammy, an opposition Labour member of parliament and the author of the letter to the prime minister.
