Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley says the crisis facing the so-called Windrush generation came as a "surprise" to him and his Government.

Dr. Rowley spoke on the controversial matter, which has been grabbing international headlines over the past week, when he met with members of the Trinidad and Tobago Diaspora in London on Monday.

The Windrush scandal arose after several international reports unmasked that Windrush citizens, many of them elderly Caribbean people, were facing deportation after being invited by the British Government to the UK some 70 years ago.

Dr. Rowley spoke to Trinidad and Tobago nationals living in the UK who stood to be affected by this matter.

He also updated nationals on the affairs back home, including a tight fiscal budget, and the continued battle with national security.

Janine Browne has that report.
