star this property answer text <p>The £5.48 email charge is levied to fund the UKVI contact centre commercial contract as the UK government believes it is right that those who use and benefit directly from the UK immigration system make an appropriate contribution towards meeting the costs of it. This email charge includes the initial e-mail enquiry plus any follow-up e-mails to and from the contact centre relating to the same enquiry.</p><p>The international charge (£5.48 per email enquiry) was introduced on 1st June 2017 as part of the UKVI Contact Centre operations contract awarded to SITEL UK Ltd</p><p>Those who use the services are predominantly from outside the UK. Our web site <a href="http://www.gov.uk" target="_blank">www.gov.uk</a> is the main source of information and advice and is free of charge.</p><p>Further details of the financial arrangement in place between the Home Office and SITEL UK Ltd for the provision of Contact Centre Services (UK and International) is not available due to it being commercially sensitive.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government ended the routine detention of children in immigration re-moval centres in 2010. Current Home Office policy maintains this position. However, although many asylum seekers who claim to be children do not have any definitive documentary evidence to support their claimed age, the Home Office does not treat an individual as an adult when there is doubt about whether they are an adult or a child. In cases where new information comes to light or concerns are raised, which indicate that a person who has been detained as an adult may be a child, we would seek to release them in to the care of local authority children’s services at the earliest safe opportunity for an age assessment and they will be treated as a child whilst the outcome is awaited.</p><p>The Home Office publishes information on the number of children in detention on the last day of each quarter. The data is available in the detention tables (dt_13_q) in the latest release of ‘Immigration Statistics, year ending March 2019’, available from the Home Office website at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/803188/detention-mar-2019-tables.ods." target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/803188/detention-mar-2019-tables.ods.</a></p>

Of this number, 136 people were detained for more than 24 hours. For the same period 8,386 detentions were recorded in the short-term holding facilities at Gatwick airport, and of these 74 people were detained for more than 24 hours. This is provisional management information that has not been assured to the standard of official statistics.</p><p>Independent Monitoring Boards (IMBs) provide vital scrutiny of short-term holding facilities and help ensure that they provide a secure and humane detention environment. IMBs publish annual reports and the Government responds with a published action plan. The Government has responded to the 2018 annual report for the North and Midlands Independent Monitoring Board for short-term holding facilities and will be responding to the 2018 annual reports for Heathrow Airport, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Larne, and Port of Dover short-term holding facility Independent Monitoring Boards in due course.</p>
