It is not possible to provide details of the cost of a specific Immigration Removal Centre as the information is commercially sensitive, and if it were released, could compromise the Government’s ability to continue to drive down costs on behalf of the taxpayer. Nationally, the average cost per day to hold an individual in immigration detention was £91.61 in the year ending June 2015.
