Immigration: Colnbrook Detention Centre

Volume 686: debated on Monday 30 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action has been taken against those running the Colnbrook detention centre after an inquest into the death of a detainee found that there had been a failure to ensure that the deceased was seen by a doctor with 24 hours of admission, as advised, and for nine days thereafter.[HL7732]

All IND removal centre contracts contain performance measures resulting in financial deductions where a contractor fails to follow agreed procedures. Application of performance measures will be considered after consideration of both the evidence from the coroner's inquiry and the relevant Stephen Shaw report into the death in custody.
