Child migrants' apology call


Documents at the National Archives show the Home Office was warned as early as 1947 against sending child migrants to Australia. Up to 10,000 children were sent to Australia between 1922 and 1967 to boost the white population and the workforce. Many were abused. Sanchia Berg reports on their calls for an apology from the British government.
