Windrush scandal: Philip Trott writes for AILA Global Migration Digest

Philip Trott, partner in BWB’s Immigration team, has written an article on the recent Windrush scandal which engulfed Theresa May’s government earlier this year.


Aside from providing a summary of how and why news of the controversy made a significant impact on UK politics, Philip’s piece also focuses on the wide-ranging (and ongoing) consequences which continue to emerge from this story.

Concluding with a description of the new Home Office regime led by Sajid Javid, Philip notes: “one of his first actions has been to disown the phrase ‘hostile environment’. However, only time will tell whether changes on his watch will go beyond the rhetoric”.
