Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - I voted in favour of my colleague, Ms Lambert's, report on the evaluation of the Dublin system. In particular, I would like to highlight the sections which emphasise that in decisions relating to children, the best interests of the child must be paramount at all times. In my own country, Scotland, we have the disgraceful situation at the Dungavel detention centre, where children of asylum seekers are effectively imprisoned. Such practices can never be described as being in the best interests of the child, and I support the Scottish Government's efforts to close that institution and return responsibility for immigration to Scottish control.
