'63 expelled' in Windrush fiasco, Home Office admits

He added: "If they feel they have been wrongly deported, it is up to them to do something about it".

Javid said that so far, Home Office officials had identified 63 records of people who were deported to the Caribbean and who may in fact have been entitled to remain in Britain under rules applying to Windrush immigrants.

Although Mr Javid stressed the figure was provisional, his admission gave an indication of the scale of the exercise facing the Home Office.

Javid said the Home Office had identified cases where people were removed who may have come to the United Kingdom legally from the Caribbean.

Officials have identified 63 records of people who were deported but may have been entitled to remain in the country under rules applying to migrants and their families invited to settle in the United Kingdom to fill labour shortages.

Mr Javid told the Commons Home Affairs Committee that officials had so far found 63 people who may have arrived from the Caribbean before 1973 - the cut-off date for residence rights - who had been made to leave.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid - whose predecessor Amber Rudd lost her job over the scandal - said the figure could change.

Almost 1,500 appointments had been booked, resulting in 526 people receiving documents which confirmed their right to live in Britain, he said.

And he admitted he still had no idea how many Windrush immigrants and their relatives had been detained. The UK's opposition claims the crisis was the outcome of a "hostile environment" created by the Home Office when it was headed by Theresa May from 2010 to 2016.

The wrongful removal of members of the Windrush generation applies to Caribbean nationals who were living in the United Kingdom legally and arrived in the country before 1973.
