Asylum accommodation key findings published

In the week beginning 15 February 2021, HMI Prisons inspectors visited Napier Barracks in Folkestone, Kent and Penally Camp in Pembrokeshire. These sites are currently being used as asylum accommodation.

The purpose of the visits was to assist the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI), who is currently conducting an inspection of contingency asylum accommodation. A statement outlining key findings from the visits has now been published on the ICIBI website. HMI Prisons will send a full report to the ICIBI, to be appended to his full report when it is published.
