Detail

Home Office Research Report 42 involved an examination of practices for checking the nationality and migrant status of arrestees in a sample of custody suites in England and Wales in 2006/07. The study also involved the piloting of enhanced checking processes in four custody suites.

The aim was to examine the use of immigration powers when dealing with foreign national arrestees and whether this could be expanded and improved.
