To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Faulks on 7 April (WA 249), whether they have set a fixed date in September 2014 by which HM Prison The Verne will be re-designated to an immigration removal centre; if not, why not; and what action they will take if the re-designation has not been completed by the agreed date.

HMP The Verne started taking immigration detainees as scheduled from 24 March 2014.

Our current plans remain that by the end of September 2014, at the latest, HMP The Verne will be redesignated to an immigration removal centre.
