Immigration: Haslar Removal Centre

Volume 696: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many male asylum-seekers and others have been in immigration detention in Haslar immigration removal centre for (a) six months, and (b) one year; and what proportion of inmates are ex-foreign nationals awaiting removal. [HL205]

The immigration removal centre at Haslar holds male detainees only, the majority of whom will have been detained for the purposes of administrative removal or deportation action.

The available information shows that on 14 November, 18 detainees were detained at Haslar for six months or more (but less than 12 months) and three for 12 months or more. This information is based on internal management information, is provisional and subject to change, and as such is not published within official statistics.
