Origin Sajid Javid appointed new United Kingdom home secretary

  • Sajid Javid named Britain's new Home Secretary as Amber Rudd resigns

International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt adds to her duties Rudd's other brief as minister for women and equalities.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid said he would do "whatever it takes" to resolve the status of all those who have become innocent casualties of the Conservative government's tough immigration policies.

It follows the resignations of former defence secretary Sir Michael Fallon, Priti Patel as global development secretary, Damian Green as first minister and James Brokenshire, who left his role as Northern Ireland secretary on health grounds.

"What the Home Secretary was very aware of was her ambition to see an increase in the number of people who were being here illegally that we were removing, particularly those foreign national offenders".

As well as the row over what she knew about targets on migrant removals, Ms Rudd had been battling intense criticism over the Windrush scandal, which has seen people from a Caribbean background denied access to benefits and healthcare or threatened with deportation despite decades of residence in the UK.

Pakistani-origin MP Sajid Javid was on Monday appointed as Britain's new Home Secretary to replace Amber Rudd, who resigned after admitting that she had "inadvertently misled" Parliament over the existence of deportation targets for illegal immigrants. It forced a mini-reshuffle with James Brokenshire replacing Mr Javid as communities secretary, three months after he stepped down as Northern Ireland secretary to receive lung cancer treatment. Leaked memos and letters in the media seemed to contradict her claims, resulting in her decision to step down late last night.

May declined to answer directly when she was asked whether she should have taken personal responsibility for the scandal instead of Rudd.

Her clampdown on illegal immigration, that began as a bid to identify those without papers, scooped up many elderly people from the Windrush generation - named after the ship that brought the first group of migrants from the West Indies in 1948.

"This review will seek to draw out how members of the Windrush generation came to be entangled in measures designed for illegal immigrants, why that was not spotted sooner and whether the right corrective measures are now in place", Javid told parliament.

One of them was Priti Patel, who left following her unauthorised meetings with Israeli officials while on a holiday.

Gove and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who were at the forefront of the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, praised Rudd following her resignation.

But Mrs May attempted to separate the issue of removal targets from the Windrush scandal. The first was the prime minister's own exposure to the fallout.

Explaining the thinking behind Javid's appointment, May's spokesman said he was "one of the most experienced ministers" in Cabinet who had "proved his drive, his ambition and his determination to get to grips with hard subjects".
