Another manifesto success as Greens call for an end to child detention

Following its inclusion in the Lib Dem and Plaid Cymru manifestoes, the Green Party win the prize for the commitment to end child detention most in line with the Sanctuary Pledge.

Check out the positive use of language in their manifesto which came out earlier this week: "Those seeking sanctuary should not bedetained, and in particular the administrative detention of children is unacceptable andshould cease immediately."

Again, this did not happen by itself - it was the hard work of Sanctuary Pledge leaders who met with Green Party officials earlier in the year to gain this commitment.

You can read the full manifesto here. The relevant section is on page 46.
