The Government takes the welfare of detainees extremely seriously and has carefully considered the HM Chief Inspector of Prison’s (HMCIP) report on Morton Hall immigration removal centre. The service improvement plan will be published on the HMCIP website shortly.

We will closely monitor progress towards implementing these recommendations. Stephen Shaw CBE has been invited to carry out a short review later this year to assess progress against his previous review into the welfare in detention of vulnerable persons.
