I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Home Department.

We welcome the report by HM chief inspector of prisons following their last unannounced inspection of Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre. In line with protocol, a service improvement plan has been drawn up responding to the recommendations made in the report, a copy of which will be sent to HM chief inspector of prisons. We will be working closely with the service provider to implement accepted recommendations to help improve the experience of detainees.
