Kezia Tobin, BID Trustee and barrister at Goldsmith Chambers, speaks with Lexis Nexis about the recent calls for time limits on immigration detention amid a rise in its use. Kezia answers questions including:

  • What is the current Home Office policy on time-limits for immigration detention, how
    long has this policy been in place and how is it enforced?
  • What are the legal issues, if any, for those in immigration detention for a sustained
    period of time?
  • What is considered ‘excessive’ when considering time spent in detention?
  • What are your views on a 28-day time limit on immigration detention and do you see
    any issues with this proposal?
  • Given the current state of affairs in the Home Office, how likely is it that the 28-day
    limit will be adhered to?
