There have long been grave concerns about the regime at Brook House – Diane Abbott

Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to news about the Brook House immigration removal centre and the Verita investigation, said:

“There have long been grave concerns about the regime at Brook House, including the Panorama exposé.

“It is unacceptable to treat detainees in this way. Labour will close Brook House, along with the women’s detention centre at Yarl’s Wood, and end outsourcing in immigration detention.”
