Petition Include Windrush generations in British Nationality Act Remedial Order

The Government should expand the British Nationality Act Remedial Order to cover the Windrush generation and their descendants, as they have historic rights to apply to become British citizens.

More details

The Immigration Act 1971 gave the Windrush Generation rights to live and work in the UK, and secure British citizenship, but many faced difficulties availing themselves of these rights due to the hostile environment that was implemented subsequently. The Government should extend the British Nationality Act Remedial Order to cover the Windrush generation and their descendants, to remove potential barriers from their securing British citizenship.
