Volume 715: debated on Wednesday 2 December 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord West of Spithead on 7 July (WA 137), what is the current immigration status of the people who were convicted under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Act 2004. [HL171]

The immigration status of those foreign nationals convicted of human trafficking is varied. However, should a non-British citizen be convicted of a criminal offence carrying a sentence of 12 months or more, they are liable to automatic deportation from the UK.

A deportation order invalidates any leave that such a person has been granted.
