Dear Home Office

I see from this response to an FOI request that in the years 2011-2013 over £9m was paid out in compensantion for unlawful detentions. https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

Please provide us with

i) figures for compensation for unlawful detention from 2004 to the most recent figures available

ii) figures for the amount of money spent on detention from 2004 to the most recent figures available, and

iii) if available, the cost from unlawful detentions (excluding compensation). I would expect this amount to relate to a subset of ii) above.

Regards

BritCits
