asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action has been taken, or is planned, by the contractors operating Yarl's Wood and Tinsley House Immigration Removal Centres to implement the recommendations of the Chief Inspector of Prisons concerning women and children. [HL5418]

HM Chief Inspector of Prisons published her reports of the inspections of Yarl's Wood and Tinsley House Immigration Removal Centres on 22 and 27 August respectively.

The UK Border Agency is in the process of drawing up action plans responding to the recommendations in each of the reports, which will cover action to be taken by the agency as well as the contractors operating the two centres. Copies of the action plans will be available in the House Library once agreed.
