The Government is currently considering the judgment made by the High Court on 10 October 2017 in respect of the statutory guidance relating to the policy on adults at risk in immigration detention and will, in the near future, be engaging with a range of bodies with an interest in immigration detention as part of the process of revising the guidance. The Home Office will carefully consider any further recommendations or findings made by Stephen Shaw.
