I have continued to hold meetings with residents and community leads to discuss the challenges of the proposed immigration centre. I will look to book a date and venue for my public meeting when, and if, the centre moves from proposal to firm plans.
I am currently awaiting detailed answers from Home Office officials on questions which I have asked, or have been asked of me. My current focus is on private discussions I am holding with the Immigration Minister as to high-level options. The result of these discussions will be available when progress can be reported. I remain of the view that working with my colleagues in Government is the most optimal way to deliver a solution to the challenges which constituents have raised with me. I am working hard to ensure that further news will be available in the next week or so
