The total number of releases from all Immigration Removal Centres (IRC) due to Rule 35 reports are published as part of the Migration Transparency data under the category ‘Reports made by a medical practitioner under Rule 35 by place of detention’. This can be found at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/migration-transparency-data

The attached table provides a breakdown of Rule 35 releases into the sub categories of R35 (1) and R35 (3). This is provisional management information, taken from a live operational database and the numbers are subject to change.
