This is an internal review designed to inform the Home Secretary’s consideration on the use of immigration detention time limits in other countries.

We are looking closely at the issue of time limits to understand how we can have a detention system that is fair to those who may be detained, upholds our immigration policies, and acts as a deterrent to those who might seek to frustrate those policies. The areas that the Hon. Member refers to will inform our considerations in this regard.
