Govt must halt deportations after embarrassing defeat in the courts

Responding to the news that the Court of Appeal has halted the deportation of many who were set to be sent to Jamaica by the government tomorrow, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Christine Jardine said:

"What will it take for this Government to learn? Even after the appalling Windrush scandal, Conservative Ministers were brazenly defending their plans to deport people just hours before the court ruled it unlawful.

"These deportation flights must stop until the Government has published the Windrush Lessons Learned Review in full.

"No one can trust the Home Office to get these decisions right, and we owe it to the victims of the Windrush Scandal to prevent anything like it from happening again."
