Windrush 70th Anniversary

EDM number 1187 in 2017-19, proposed by Helen Hayes on 19/04/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Immigration.

That this House notes that 22 June 2018 will be the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the HMT Empire Windrush at Tilbury Docks carrying passengers from the Caribbean; further notes with gratitude that many Windrush passengers had previously served in the UK armed forces during the Second World War; recognises the important role that those passengers played in the post-war reconstruction of the UK and in the establishment of the newly created NHS; further recognises the enormous social, political and cultural contribution that Windrush passengers and ensuing generations have made to British society and to the establishment of modern, multi-cultural Britain; and calls on the Government to designate 22 June Windrush Day in recognition and celebration of the Windrush Generation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 74 MPs.
