To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what is the total cost of keeping individuals notified of removal to Rwanda but not relocated on 14 June 2022 in immigration detention.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
20 June 2022
All individuals who were not relocated on 14 June 2022 had undertaken dangerous journeys across the Channel and had been detained since their arrival in the UK.
The Home Office publishes statistics on immigration detention in the ‘Immigration Statistics Quarterly Release ’. This includes data on people:
- Entering detention by initial place of detention in table Det_02a of the ‘Detention summary tables’.
- Leaving detention by last place of detention published in the table Det_04c of the ‘Detention summary tables’ and by reason for leaving detention in table.
- Det_D03 of the ‘detention detailed datasets’.
- In detention by current place of detention in table Det_03a of the ‘Detention summary tables’.
Information on the average cost per night to hold an individual in immigration detention can be found at Migration Transparency data. As at Quarter 1 2022, the average cost per night to hold an individual in immigration detention was £107.23. The average cost per night is not impacted by the immigration circumstances of those in detention and no new accommodation has been opened to hold those who were not relocated on 14 June.
