Detention Centres: Finance

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate she has made of the cost of detaining (a) an adult and (b) a person under 16 years in an immigration centre for one year, broken down by category of cost. (233310)

We do not differentiate costs between an adult and a person under 16-years-old in our immigration removal centres (IRC). The estimated average cost of holding a single person in an IRC is £130 per day.
