Dear Correctional Services Department,

Thank you for your reply and clarification question. The breakdown categories requested (such as "Management of facilities", "Medical costs of detainees", "Other costs related to treatment of detainees") are referenced from page 242 of this Legislative Council document (https://www.legco.gov.hk/yr20-21/english...) where the Immigration Department provided information regarding the operational expenses of another immigration detention centre, Castle Peak Bay Immigration Centre.

If Tai Tam Gap Correctional Institution maintains this data with different breakdowns, please provide the relevant breakdown categories of operational expenditure as applicable.

Thanks very much for your help with this inquiry.

Kind regards,
H. Y. Fung

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I refer to your application for access to information under the Code on
Access to Information (“the Code”) to this Department on 7.12.2022
requesting information as regards operational expenditure of Tai Tam Gap
Correctional Institution (“TGCI”) and average daily costs per detainee at
TGCI, our interim replies to you on 16.12.2022 and 23.12.2022.
 Clarification on the requested information was also sought with you on
10.1.2023.

Concerning your requests for the “costs of meals for detainees”, “staff
remuneration”, “management of facilities”, “medical costs of detainees”,
“other costs related to treatment of detainees” and “any other categories
as applicable” for the financial year of 2021-22, they are parts of the
daily management work of CSD and the Department does not maintain a
breakdown of the operating expenditure of TGCI alone.  It is difficult to
calculate the average daily cost per detainee for the period.

Given such, the requested information is not readily available.  Compiling
the aforesaid information would require unreasonable diversion of
resources of the department.  Pursuant to para. 1.14 and 2.9(d) of the
Code, your requests could not be acceded to.

You may also wish to note that, pursuant to paragraph 1.25 of the Code,
any person who believes that a department has failed to comply with any
provision of the Code may ask the department to review the situation.
 Furthermore, pursuant to paragraph 1.26 of the Code, any person who
believes that a department has failed to properly apply any provision of
the Code may also complain to The Ombudsman.  The Ombudsman’s address is –
 
30/F, China Merchants Tower,
Shun Tak Centre,
168-200 Connaught Road Central,
Hong Kong
Telephone: 2629 0555
Fax: 2882 8149
