Home Office backed ‘slave labour’ pay for immigration detainees – Diane Abbott

You are here: Home / News / Press / Home Office backed ‘slave labour’ pay for immigration detainees – Diane Abbott

05 Sep 2018
Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on reports that the Home Office backed ‘slave labour’ pay for immigration detainees, said:

“This is an absolute scandal. If these rates of pay were in place anywhere other than immigration detention centres they would fall into the category of modern slavery.

“These shameful policies fit entirely with this government’s treatment of immigration detainees as something less than ordinary human beings deserving dignity and respect.  This attitude underpins the hostile environment. These scandals won’t end until that attitude and that policy are ended.”
