Haslar Immigration Removal Centre: Trees

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN 41015, tabled on 20 July 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, for what reason trees and shrubs outside the grounds of Haslar Immigration Removal Centre were removed; and whether he plans to take steps to replant those trees and shrubs.

The trees and shrubs outside the centre were removed due to a misunderstanding between the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and the contractors assigned to carry out work to tidy up the area.

MoJ is currently considering quotes for the replacement of the plants and trees and this work will begin as soon as we have chosen a contractor.
