Government Inspector’s damning report on Wethersfield

Below is the highly critical letter sent to Tom Pursglove, Minister for Legal Migration and the Border, from the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration, about conditions at Wethersfield Barracks. 

The letter confirms the risks to residents health that Care4Calais has warned about since the opening of this prison-like camp to house people seeking asylum: the inspector specifically refers to “the risks resulting from the tensions that will inevitably arise when a sizeable population of men is being accommodated in a remote location, with very limited information on what the future might hold for them and with very little to do.”

That such a letter should have to be sent in the first place is a disgrace, and a damning comment on the inhumane conditions at the camp.
