IMB National Chair, Dame Anne Owers, said,

‘I welcome Stephen Shaw’s review and his recognition of the dedication and commitment of IMB members. They are volunteers, who make over 3106 visits a year to places of immigration detention. I look forward to working with the Home Office to ensure that IMBs have the necessary resources to carry out their important role.’
