To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether his Department plans to respond to the Independent Monitoring Board at Campsfield House Immigration Removal Centre Annual Report of 2017 within the six-week timeframe set out in Detention Services Order DSO 04/2014.
5 June 2018
Independent monitoring of our immigration removal centres (IRCs) is vital to ensuring that each centre provides a secure and humane environment for detainees.The response to the Independent Monitoring Board at Campsfield House IRC Annual Report of 2016 was delayed for various reasons, including the General Election and ministerial changes. I responded to the report on 13 February 2018.
I will be writing to the Independent Monitoring Board with a response to their Annual Report for 2017 within the six week timeframe as set out in Detention Services Order 04/2014 ‘working with Independent Monitoring Boards’.
