Conviction Notifications

Volume 456: debated on Monday 29 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many conviction notifications his Department has sent to foreign (a) governments and (b) law enforcement agencies in each year since 1997, broken down by country to which the notification was sent. (115866)

The latest available information was set out in my statements to the House of Commons dated 10 January and 16 January, and in the Home Office press statement issued on 13 January

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what procedures are in place to update the Police National Computer with information when individuals are deported by other governments to the UK on the grounds of a criminal conviction. (115867)

Recent events have made clear the complexity of the issues faced across Government and beyond. This is not helped by the differences in the 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.
