Detention

Introduction

Those subject to immigration control may be detained in the UK whilst they wait for permission to enter or before they are deported or removed from the country. From 2000, asylum seekers could be detained for the determination of their claims within the Detained Fast Track process. The MLP represented Detention Action in a challenge to the policy and practice of detaining asylum seekers for the determination of their claims, which led to the suspension of the Detained Fast Track process in 2015.
