HC Deb 11 February 1993 vol 218 c767W
29. Mr. Gapes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans Her Majesty's Government have to build new detention centres for refugees; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Charles Wardle

We plan to provide about 300 additional detention places in phases from 1993 to 1995 to accommodate those detained under immigration powers, including asylum applicants. These plans have not yet been finalised.
