An immigration fiasco at the Home Office has led to the resignation of Amber Rudd as Home Secretary. Her departure has sparked a mini Cabinet reshuffle.
Mr Javid’s first statement as Home Secretary set out his plans for rectifying the Windrush scandal. “The most urgent task I have is to help those British citizens that came from the Caribbean, the so-called Windrush generation, and make sure that they are treated with the decency and the fairness that they deserve,” he said. “We are going to have a strategy in place that does something the previous Home Secretary set out last week when she made a statement to Parliament about making sure we have an immigration policy that is fair, it treats people with respect and with decency.”

Mr Brokenshire said he was honoured to have been asked to take on the new role. “Looking forward to taking the Government’s agenda forward especially on building the homes our country needs.”

“Delighted to have this additional brief, and want to thank Amber for all she did in this role,” said Ms Mordaunt.
