HC Deb 02 May 2001 vol 367 c682W
Mr. Corbyn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the date and place of all suicide attempts by persons held under immigration law for each year since 1992. [158971]

Mrs. Roche

[holding answer 26 April 2001]: Central records are not maintained specifically for suicide attempts by individuals detained under Immigration Act powers. Information is, however, maintained on actual self-inflicted deaths. In terms of immigration service detention centres, there has been one such incident: this occurred in January 2000 at Harmondsworth detention centre. Similarly, in terms of immigration detainees held in Prison Service accommodation, there has been one incident of self-inflicted death: this was in August 1995 at Her Majesty's prison, Norwich.
