To ask Her Majesty’s Government what has been the outcome of the work by Detention Operations and Border Force with Heathrow Airports Limited on temporary alternatives for the spaces currently used for ebola screening at Heathrow, which had been designated as short-term holding facilities.

Border Force has recently negotiated an agreement with Public Health England (PHE) for use of their accommodation at Terminals 3, 4 and 5 as temporary holding room space. PHE accommodation at T3 and T5 will be shared with Detention Operations, while the accommodation at T4 will be entirely vacated. Heathrow Airport Limited, in conjunction with Detention Operations and Border Force, is working with their contractor to finalise the specifications for each temporary holding room.

Discussions are now taking place to determine the phasing of this work and associated timescales.
