HL Deb 24 January 2005 vol 668 c136WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What are the reasons for the detention under the Immigration Acts, as at 25 September 2004, of 80 persons (of whom 60 are asylum seekers) for one year or more, and of 125 persons (of whom 100 are asylum seekers) for between six months and one year. [HL742]

Baroness Scotland of Asthal

Information on the reasons for detention of the persons concerned could be obtained only by examination of individual case files at disproportionate cost.
