Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre

EDM number 1224 in 2009-10, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 30/03/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families and Immigration.

That this House notes that two of the Government's most senior professional advisers, the Children's Commissioner for England and Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons, have stated unequivocally that Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre, near Bedford, is `no place for a child'; further notes that their detailed reports, published respectively in February and March 2010, catalogue compelling reasons for concluding that the welfare of children is `clearly and adversely affected' at Yarl's Wood; believes that the reports make shameful reading for a country which prides itself in having the welfare of children at the heart of its legislation; further notes that both reports recommend greater attention by the relevant Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) and that the Children's Commissioner reports that the LSCB is already reviewing an allegation of sexually harmful behaviour between unrelated young children at Yarl's Wood; and further believes that immediate rectification is required to safeguard children in the Government's care at Yarl's Wood Immigration Centre.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
