Sexual Offences

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 12 June 2008, Official Report, column 335W, on sexual offences, how many and what proportion of visas issued were accompanied by notification orders in each of the last three years. (217636)

Notification orders are issued by courts. This is a separate process from the issuing of visas. While figures for the number of notification orders issued are collected by local MAPPA responsible authorities, these authorities do not collate information on the proportion of orders issued for persons who had been granted a visa to enter the UK. It is not therefore possible to say how many visas were followed by notification orders.
