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

Leader Jeremy Corbyn said Rudd had been the "human shield" for May, who "now has questions to answer".

During a local election campaign visit to Greater Manchester, Mrs May said: "When I was home secretary, yes, there were targets in terms of removing people from the country who were here illegally".

"One thing Sajid Javid did make clear is that there is a huge distinction between people of the Windrush generation and people who are here illegally", he continued.

Labour's Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott said: "The change in Home Secretary will mean nothing unless Theresa May's "hostile environment" policy is finally brought to an end".

The 48-year-old former investment banker became the first home secretary from an ethnic minority. "I think that'll help him deal with what's a hard and challenging brief for the Home Office".

The former communities secretary, who was promoted following Amber Rudd's resignation, disowned the phrase "hostile environment" in relation to Government promises to deal with illegal immigration.

In the Commons, Mr Javid told Windrush generation migrants who had struggled to prove their immigration status: "This never should have been the case and I will do whatever it takes to put it right".

Over the weekend, he told the Sunday Telegraph the Windrush scandal felt "very personal".

Politically neat, generally welcomed by colleagues - In the recent canon of Tory events the relatively smooth landing of this appointment is an achievement in itself. In a gracious message, Miss Rudd congratulated her successor on an "outstanding debut" in his new job.

Javid's appointment happened just hours after Rudd was forced to resign after she admitted in a letter to May that she had "inadvertently misled" a parliamentary committee last Wednesday by denying the government had targets for the deportation of illegal migrants.
