Dear Kirsten Oswald/Jim Murphy/David Montgomery/Alan Louttit,
You may have seen the revelations on TV earlier this year of the shocking treatment of asylum seekers and other immigrants currently held in detention centres in the UK, and also the report of the Parliamentary Inquiry into Detention (see links below).
If elected to serve as the MP for East Renfrewshire at the forthcoming General Election, what you would do to help bring about an end to these abuses and to implement the recommendations of the Parliamentary Inquiry?
