Campsfield House to reopen: A disgraceful decision

Responding to the news that the Home Office is planning to reopen Campsfield House in Kidlington as part of their Rwanda Plan, Liberal Democrat MP for Oxford West and Abingdon Layla Moran said:

“This disgraceful decision reflects at best a failure of policy and at worst complete heartlessness from the Home Office. Our community fought for years to close this facility, and will be incredibly dismayed by this announcement.

“Locking people up for months on end – without giving them any idea how long they’ll be detained – is inhumane and unnecessary. 

“These measures are also an enormous waste of taxpayers’ money.

“Instead of reopening a closed detention centre, the Home Secretary should be reducing immigration detention to an absolute last resort, to save both money and misery.

“I will be fighting to stop Campsfield House reopening.”
