HC Deb 17 June 2002 vol 387 cc105-6W
Mr. Viggers

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many detainees have been allocated to Haslar Detention Centre in the last year; how many have been granted political asylum; how many have been given exceptional leave to remain; and how many have been deported. [60397]

Beverley Hughes

The latest available information on the number of persons detained under Immigration Act powers relates to 30 March 2002. As at that date, 135 persons (to the nearest five) were being detained at Haslar Immigration Removal Centre.

I regret that statistics showing the total number of detainees allocated to Haslar Immigration Removal Centre in the last year, and the requested information on the outcome of their cases could be obtained only at disproportionate cost by examination of individual case records.

Information on Immigration Act detainees as at 29 June 2002 will be published on 30 August 2002 on the Home Office Research Development and Statistics Directorate website at http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/rds/immigrationl.html.
