HC Deb 01 December 1998 vol 321 c134W
Mr. Beith

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many occasions the contract points requirements have been exceeded at Campsfield House detention centre in each year since its establishment; and if fines(a) have been imposed and (b) are currently being considered. [61158]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

Unlike contracts between the Home Office and the private sector for the management of some prisons, neither the present contract nor previous contracts for the management and operation of Campsfield House immigration detention centre contain any provision relating to the award of points for contractual performance. Therefore, there has not been, and presently cannot be, any question of exceeding a points requirement at Campsfield House, nor has there at any time been any question of points-related financial penalties.
