The Home Office publishes, once a quarter, the average cost per day of immigration detention as part of Immigration Statistics. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/immigration-statistics-july-to-september-2016

The Home Office is not able to calculate the average daily cost of short term holding facilities and immigration removal centres without incurring disproportionate cost.
