This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
4 January 2016
The below table provides details of immigration detainees detained at the end of June 2015 and is taken from quarterly published national statistics:
Held 28 Days or Fewer
Over 28 Days But Fewer Than Four Months
Four to Six Months
Six to Twelve Months
Over Twelve Months
Foreign National Offenders
It is not possible to provide a break-down of foreign national offenders convicted of immigration offences and foreign national offenders convicted of non-immigration offences. Such data is not aggregated in national reporting systems, which would mean these questions could only be answered through a disproportionately expensive manual case search to collate the data.
