Prime Minister, David Cameron said:

"One year on from the British Government’s apology and the tragedy of thousands of lost childhoods is still as sad and shocking as ever. We should remember the hardship and heartache experienced by those children and their families as a result of these misguided child migration schemes. Margaret Humphreys and the Child Migrants Trust worked hard to secure the apology and continue to support those affected today.  I'm delighted that the Government-funded £6 million Family Restoration Fund has already reunited so many former child migrants with their relatives."

Gordon Brown MP said:

"One year ago I was proud to offer an apology for the UK's role in the shameful deportation of thousands of children to former colonies.  The deportation of the innocents was cruel, unnecessary and deeply unjust and I am pleased that the Child Migrants Trust continues its excellent work providing support services to those who were so wrongly robbed of their childhood.  You have my warm best wishes and my heartfelt thanks."
