UK's May apologises to Caribbean countries over treatment of post-war migrants

LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May apologised to representatives from 12 Caribbean countries on Tuesday over fresh harsh treatment via immigration bureaucrats of people who arrived in Britain as youngsters between the overdue 1940s and the early 1970s.


The so-called "Windrush generation," whose parents had been invited to Britain to plug labour shortfalls after World War Two, had been caught up in a tightening of immigration rules overseen via May in 2012 when she was inside minister.


"I want to apologise to you today because we are genuinely sorry for any anxiety that has been caused," May told leaders and diplomats from the Caribbean countries, who had been in London for a summit of Commonwealth heads of presidency.
