To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people living in (a) Camberwell and Peckham constituency and (b) the London Borough of Southwark have (i) been detained for immigration purposes and (ii) successfully appealed a Home Office decision to detain them for immigration purposes in each of the last five years.

The information requested could only be supplied at disproportionate cost.

There is no process of appeal against detention decisions, but detainees are able to apply to a judge of the First-tier Tribunal for bail, as many times as they wish. They are also able to challenge the lawfulness of detention via judicial review or writ of habeas corpus.
