Prisoners: Deportation

Volume 685: debated on Monday 9 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Baroness Scotland of Asthal on 26th June (WA 132), how many prisoners currently serving their sentences have been recommended for deportation by the relevant court.[HL6638]

The department does not currently collate information in the format requested and it could be produced in the format requested only at disproportionate cost. I have updated the House today on the progress which has been made on the eight priority action areas to improve our effectiveness in deporting foreign national prisoners, which the Secretary of State for the Home Department launched in his Statement of 23 May.
