Cross-Party Parliamentary Report into Use of Immigration Detention

On 3 March 2015 the APPG on Refugees and the APPG on Migration published their Report of the Inquiry into the Use of Immigration Detention in the United Kingdom, recommending that there should be a 28 day time limit on immigration detention, that detention should be “very rare” and that alternatives to detention should be utilised more readily.

Doughty Street’s Laura Dubinsky was among the lawyers who gave evidence to the inquiry.

For commentary on the Report’s findings on the treatment of mentally ill people in detention please read the excellent new blog post from Alison Pickup and Martha Spurrier here.
