The latest available information on the number of minors detained solely under Immigration Act powers is for 27 March 2004 and shows that 30 minors were detained at that date. A breakdown of the number detained in each removal centre is not available. Providing such a breakdown is contrary to National Statistics principles and protocols on confidentiality given the small numbers involved.

Families with children may be detained at Tinsley House, Dungavel and Oakington Reception Centre.
