Departmental Complaints

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any complaints investigated by (a) her Department and (b) the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration resulted in findings of wrong-doing by Home Office employees or its contractors’ employees, including immigration removal centre and immigration escort staff in each of the last five years; and if she will make a statement.

BIA does not currently hold these data, and the cost of extracting them from records would be disproportionate. However, of the 52 serious complaints investigated since 1 October 2006 in relation to escorting contractors, only one has been substantiated and seven have been partially substantiated.
