Could you please send me a copy of the HM Chief Inspector of Prisons (HMCIP) report into the Oakington Immigration Reception Centre which has recently been published.
The existence of the report is mentioned in an article on the BBC news website published on the 12th of December 2008:
At the time of writing, this report is not available on the HMCIP website (http://inspectorates.homeoffice.gov.uk/h...). I would like to suggest it is made available online there as soon as possible. In future I would suggest placing the report online at the same time as it is released to the press. This would ensure members of the public can obtain it and read it when it is in the public eye.
I note that HMCIP say that FOI requests for information released after the 9th of May 2007 should be directed to the Ministry of Justice.
I would like to draw your attention to section 10.1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which states you must respond to requests for information promptly.
HMCIP has now made the report available on their website at:
