Figures suggest that in 2016/17 over 880,000 hours of paid work was carried out by immigration detainees, with the vast majority of workers paid £1 per hour. Hugh and Nick are instructed by Toufique Hossain and Philip Armitage of Duncan Lewis’ Public Law Team. To read the press release in full, please see here.
