Volume 507: debated on Thursday 11 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the cost to the public purse has been of enforcing European arrest warrants issued in each other EU member state in each year since 2003; and what the average cost to the public purse was of enforcing such a warrant in each of those years. (321191)

[holding answer 8 March 2010]: The European arrest warrant has been in operation since 1 January 2004. The Home Office does not hold these data. They could not be accessed without incurring disproportionate cost.
