My Rt. Hon. Friend the Home Secretary commissioned a fact-finding project to understand how time limits on immigration detention work in other countries and how they relate to any other protections within their immigration detention systems. We are inviting other countries to engage on this project. The timetable for delivery will be driven by their availability.

The focus of this review is to gather facts and information from the Governments concerned. There are no plans for charities and people with experience of having been detained to be directly involved. Once the review is complete, my Rt. Hon. Friend will consider the next steps.
