The UK Border Agency has responded to media coverage on conditions for women and children at Tinsley House immigration removal centre.

David Wood, Strategic Director of Criminality and Detention Group, UK Border Agency said:

‘We accept the conditions at Tinsley House at the time of the inspection were not ideal but we do not agree that they are wholly unacceptable for women and children. However, we are nonetheless reviewing our services.

‘Treating women and children with care and compassion is a priority for the UK Border Agency,

‘Removal centres are a necessary part of enforcing immigration control. It is vital that they are well-run, safe and secure. Detainees are cared for with respect, with access to a range of medical, educational and welfare facilities.’

Last week the Royal Colleges claimed that ‘significant damage’ was being done to the health of children and young people subjected to immigration detention.

Sir Al Aynsley-Green, the Children’s Commissioner for England, called for an end the practice of detaining children and young people for immigration purposes.
