Motion text

That this House strongly opposes plans by the Home Office to re-open Campsfield House Immigration Removal Centre in Kidlington, Oxfordshire; notes that, following the recommendations of the Shaw Report, and a long campaign by local residents opposed to the practice of indefinite detention, the site was shut down in 2018; further notes with great sadness the tragic suicide of a 19-year-old Ramazan Komluca while residing at Campsfield House in 2005; raises concerns about inhumane and cruel conditions across the detention estate; notes that seeking asylum is not a crime; believes that £227 million of taxpayer money could be spent in a more effective way to handle asylum cases humanely; calls on the Home Office to reverse this decision and ensure that it remains closed; also calls for an end to the practice of indefinite detention for asylum seekers; and supports local residents and campaigns in their fight against the reopening.
