Javid said that so far, Home Office officials had identified 63 records of people who were deported to the Caribbean and who may in fact have been entitled to remain in Britain under rules applying to Windrush immigrants.

Officials have identified 63 records of people who were deported but may have been entitled to remain in the country under rules applying to migrants and their families invited to settle in the United Kingdom to fill labour shortages.

Mr Javid told the Home Affairs Select Committee that the exercise has so far found 63 people who may have arrived in the United Kingdom from the Caribbean before 1973 and have been removed or deported.

And he admitted he still had no idea how many Windrush immigrants and their relatives had been detained.

Sajid Javid said that the figures were provisional and based on a check of 8,000 records of people from the Caribbean over 45 years old who were removed in the past 16 years.

Lightning dominate Capitals in Game 3 to get back into series
There was a time when the Washington Capitals couldn't be trusted to advance past the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy , who had appeared rattled at times in the games on his home ice, made 36 saves.

"There's something in their record that suggests they could have been in the United Kingdom before 1973. who have been removed or deported".

Mr Javid added: "So far we have found - and I would preface these are not final numbers, they are subject to change because the work is still ongoing - we have found 63 cases where individuals could have entered the United Kingdom before 1973, so these are Caribbean Commonwealth [citizens], who could have entered before 1973".

Only last week immigration minister Caroline Nokes said she was still not aware of a single wrongful deportation of a Windrush citizen, despite Home Office chiefs admitting they knew of such cases.

In three cases, the person does have a legal basis to stay in Britain, while nine cases are ongoing.

Writing on Twitter, Labour MP David Lammy said Mrs May needed to come to Parliament to explain how the 63 people were removed, describing the revelation as "truly a day of national shame".
