Who we are
The Brook House Inquiry has been set up to investigate the decisions, actions and circumstances surrounding the mistreatment of individuals who were detained at Brook House Immigration Removal Centre (IRC) shown in the BBC Panorama programme “Under-Cover: Britain’s Immigration Secrets”, aired on 4 September 2017.
The Brook House Inquiry’s first phase of hearings will commence on the 23 November 2021 and will conclude on or before 10 December 2021. Hearings will generally run from 10am – 4pm Monday to Thursday and 09.30am – 1.30pm on Fridays. Details about the timetable for the week ahead will be published on our Hearings page.
Space at our venue is limited due to the need to maintain social distancing and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. As such, we advise you to book a seat specifying the date or session you wish to attend. This can be done up to 24 hours in advance of the date you wish to attend. If you turn up without a seat booking, you might be refused entry if we are full. We would also encourage you to read our Covid-19 information before attending. If you would prefer to follow the hearings virtually, all sessions are streamed live on our YouTube channel.
