To mark the occasion of the 7th Anniversary of the UK Government apology to Britain's former Child Migrants, Prime Minister Theresa May said:

“We must never forget the harm caused to child migrants and the distress caused to thousands of families who were unjustly broken up by the child migration schemes.

“While we cannot undo their suffering, we owe it to victims and survivors to continue to learn from the mistakes of the past.

“That is why, seven years on from the National Apology, I am pleased hundreds of families have been reunited through the Family Restoration Fund and that the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is currently investigating allegations of child sexual abuse in the British child migration programmes.”
