To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what research has been commissioned by his Department into the operation of Haslar Removal Centre since February 2002; and if he will place copies in the Library. [102450]

No specific research has been commissioned into the operation of Haslar Removal Centre. However, Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Prisons carried out a formal inspection of the Centre in February 2002. We expect the report of this inspection to be published in the near future.
