Deportation

Volume 459: debated on Thursday 3 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is considering deportation proceedings in the case of (a) Antonio Mia and (b) Shpetim Bujaj. (134880)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many allegations of assault have been made against deportation escorts in each of the last five years; and what the result has been of police investigations of allegations. (134974)

We do not differentiate between escorts involving detainees who are subject to a deportation order and those who are subject to administrative removal. The figures given therefore cover all immigration escorts for the given periods. The figures for 2002 are not readily available and provision of these figures would be at disproportionate cost.

In the following years the figures are as follows:

Number

2003-04

27

2004-05

79

2005-06

72

2006-07

44

All of the assault allegations received by the Border and Immigration Agency were reported to the police. None of the police investigations has resulted in charges against the escorts.
