The Border and Immigration Agency meets regularly with Bail for Immigration Detainees (BID). The last such meeting was on 29 November 2007 at the National Asylum Stakeholder Forum which is held bi-monthly.

Officials have been discussing with BID the information requested in their letter of August. That as well as the letter of October will be replied to very shortly.
