To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in how many cases detainees were not released automatically as a result of Rule 35 applications because her Department disputed medical evidence; and in how many such cases exceptional grounds were stated, by immigration removal centre, in (a) 2013 and (b) 2014 to date.

It is not possible to provide the numbers of detainees subject to a Rule 35 report who were not released from detention due to disputed medical evidence or in how many cases exceptional grounds were stated without examination of individual records at disproportionate cost.
