The figures given in the table are for England and Wales only, as at 23 June 2006. They do not include extraditions to or from Scotland and Northern Ireland, where Ministers and judicial authorities have devolved powers to make or grant requests. They also exclude surrenders from or to the Republic of Ireland, prior to one January 2004, as those were made under the Backing of Warrants (Republic of Ireland) Act 1965, rather than under extradition legislation.
