Doesn't this make it easier to be illegal?

If people forged some documentation that was issued to the Windrush arrivals, there is now no way of checking it against the government copies, so presumably it would have to be accepted as genuine unless the forgery contained a mistake. I suspect that the inks and paper that was used in those days can still be obtained.
