Lord Avebury – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Avebury on 2015-10-05.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they intend to publish the short-term holding facility rules.

Lord Bates

In light of commitments made during the passage of the Immigration Act 2014 to make Rules in respect of short term holding facilities (STHFs), the Government intends to consult on the short term holding facility rules once Stephen Shaw CBE’s report into detainee welfare in detention is published. Mr Shaw has completed this review and has submitted his report to the Home Office. His findings are being carefully considered before the report is published by laying it before Parliament, alongside the Government’s response to its recommendations.
