On the 29th November 2018 the Government published additional information on those held within the Immigration Detention Estate in direct response to the statement made by the Home Secretary, in July of that year, and committed to a full review of our published data to further improve transparency. We are to commence the public consultation element of that review in the coming months.

In addition, the new Atlas case working system is in development. Atlas will improve how cases are recorded, managed and reported and will improve the recording of gender.
