star this property answer text <p>The prison service runs one immigration removal centre in which detainee pay is as set out in the Secretary of State for the Home Department’s previous answer. Immigration Detainees detained in a prison have the same rights as a remand prisoner. Where a detainee undertakes work in a prison he or she will be paid the rate paid to other prisoners in that prison.</p><p> </p><p>This means the pay rate will vary nationally depending on the work being done by the detainee and the pay rates determined by the Governor. Governors have discretion to determine local pay rates that reflect their prisoner population needs, the type of prison, the regime in operation, and the jobs / educational / vocational training that are available.</p><p> </p><p>Governors must pay at least the national minimum rate of £4 per week (Prison Service Order (PSO) 4460 sets out the national policy for Prisoners’ Pay), though in many cases the rate will be considerably higher. Prisoners or immigration detainees who want to work but for whom no suitable employment is available, or who are unable to work, receive the minimum ‘unemployment’ pay of £2.50 per week.</p><p> </p><p>A copy of the PSO can be found here: https://www.justice.gov.uk/offenders/psos</p>

star this property answer text <p>95% of individuals liable for removal at any one time are managed within the community through immigration bail and regular reporting, rather than within an immigration removal centre. Alternatives to detention are not, of course, alternatives to case resolution, and our objective is to achieve better outcomes for migrants, meaning quicker resolution of their case whether the result is a grant of leave or the migrant’s departure (preferably voluntary) from the UK.</p><p>The Home Secretary said - in his statement to parliament on 24 July introducing Stephen Shaw’s follow up report on immigration detention - that he had asked the Home Office to do more to explore alternatives to detention with faith groups, with non-governmental organisations and within communities. Working with UNHCR, a pilot scheme is being developed that will manage a number of women in the community who would otherwise be detained at Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, meaning that rather than receiving support and care in an immigration removal centre, the women in question will get a programme of support and care in the community.</p>

The identification of an LGBTQI individual detained under immigration powers, is entirely at the discretion of the individual. Consequently, even a manual trawl of cases of individuals detained will not necessarily be representative of the true number of LGBTQI individuals detained during any period.</p><p>The fact that an individual detained under immigration powers within an IRC or prison is transsexual will always be recorded in a manner sensitive to the needs of that individual, not for statistical purposes. As it is rare for the detention of a trans or intersex person to occur, any reporting would risk the identification of individuals.</p> more like this
