To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which countries have been passed information about detained asylum seekers originating from those countries in the last 12 months. (141404)

The Border and Immigration Agency does not disclose information to other countries which would identify someone as an asylum applicant.

When communicating with foreign embassies for the purpose of re-documentation the Border and Immigration Agency will only inform them that we believe the person to be one of their nationals and they have no legal basis to be in the United Kingdom.
