Deportation: Iraq

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many foreign nationals residing in Scotland were (a) issued with deportation orders and (b) subject to forced returns to Iraq in each month since January 2006. (169479)

Information on the region of residence at the time of removal or when a deportation order was issued is available only through the examination of individual records at disproportionate cost. The Chief Executive of the Border and Immigration Agency wrote a letter to the Home Affairs Committee on 20 November providing an up-date to information on the deportation of foreign nationals that have committed crimes within the UK. A copy of this letter is available in the Library of the House.
