Asked whether the Deputy Prime Minister would correct his comment in the Commons that the Yarlswood Detention Centre would be closing, the PMS said that the Deputy Prime Minister was talking in the context of child detention and it was the case that there would be an announcement in the next few days regarding the closure of the Yarlswood Family Unit.

Put that the Deputy Prime Minister did say that Yarlswood would close, the PMS said that the adult centre would remain open, but the family unit, which historically detained children would close. The PMS added that the Deputy Prime Minister was referring to the family unit in the context of child detention.
