To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many asylum-seekers are currently in detention in the United Kingdom, of what nationality, and in which removal centres.

The table which I will place in the House Library, shows the number of people detained in immigration removal centres, short term holding facilities and pre departure accommodation; as at 30 September 2013 the latest date for which published information is available; who have claimed asylum at some point.

The Home Office publishes quarterly and annual statistics on the number of people detained in the United Kingdom for immigration purposes, within Immigration Statistics. The data on people in detention are readily available in the latest release, Immigration Statistics: July — September 2013, from the GOV.UK website:

https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/home-statistics-quarterly-release.

Published figures on people detained in the United Kingdom solely under Immigration Act powers include those held in short term holding facilities, pre departure accommodation and immigration removal centres. Figures exclude those held in police cells, Prison Service establishments, short term holding rooms at ports and airports (for less than 24 hours), and those recorded as detained under both criminal and immigration powers and their dependants.
