Conclusion of the Intelligence and Security Committee's Rendition Report of July 2007 notes that from April 2004
“assurances on humane treatment were properly and routinely sought in operations that involved any risk of rendition and/or U.S. custody.”
Detention issues are the subject of frequent and regular discussions with the US administration.
Because of the wide ranging nature of these exchanges we cannot provide statistics on this matter, but they include discussion of policy and processes in place to prevent any mistreatment, as well as detailed discussion of individual cases. Continued close co-operation with the US is absolutely critical to the UK's ability to counter the threat to the UK posed by global terrorism.
