British Citizens: Convictions Abroad

Volume 456: debated on Monday 29 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what procedures there are for adding onto the Police National Computer the details of those convicted overseas and then deported to UK prisons. (116217)

[holding answer 16 January 2007]: Recent events have made clear the complexity of the issues faced across Government and beyond. This is not helped by the differences in systems, procedures and criteria for recording and using for public protection, information about criminality in this country and outside the UK. I have therefore instigated a Government wide review of the way in which such information is shared and used.
