asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many alleged criminals have been extradited from the Irish Republic to stand trial in the United Kingdom for crimes of violence in each year since 1965, respectively; and how many alleged offenders have been extradited from the United Kingdom to the Irish Republic in such cases for the same periods.

I regret that the full information requested is not available. The issue or execution of warrants in the United Kingdom under the Backing of Warrants (Republic of Ireland) Act 1965 is a matter for the police and the courts in the separate parts of the United Kingdom.
