Guidelines on clothing provision to immigration detainees in CIC

We're waiting for Gigi Lo to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make an information access request regarding the relevant procedures on provision of clothing to immigration detainees at Castle Peak Bay Immigration Centre (CIC). May I know,

1. In what circumstances would clothing be provided by immigration staff to detainees?

2. What kind of clothing is provided (ex. Are they uniforms or casual wear)? Are these provided upon admission to detention? Please specify the types of clothing (ex. Pants, t-shirts, sweater, underwear, etc) and number of each article that is provided to detainees.

3. What is the procedure for detainees to request additional clothing? How long does it usually take to provide them the requested clothing or shoes?

4. If the clothing or shoes are not in the appropriate size, are there avenues to apply for a change in size?

Thanks very much for your help on this matter. I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Gigi Lo
