G4S’s £14m profit from Brook House – Diane Abbott responds

Diane Abbott, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to reports that G4S made a £14m profit from operating an immigration centre where staff were filmed abusing detainees, said:

“It is utterly perverse that millions are made from the undignified and inhumane conditions human beings are living in under G4S-run detention centres.

“This Tory government has a disgraceful record of putting profits before people.

“Labour in government will close down both Yarl’s Wood and Brook House, end indefinite detention and review the entire immigration detention system.”
