§ Mr. Clappison
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the impact of the decision of the European Court in the case of Calfa (C-348/96) on(a) criminal law in the United Kingdom and (b) the development of a EU system of criminal law; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Kate Hoey
The judgment of the European Court in the case of Calfa (C-348/96) has no effect on criminal law in the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom does not have legislation requiring automatic deportation akin to the Greek law at issue in this case. Nor does the judgment significantly further the development of an European Union system of criminal law. The judgment is in line with previous jurisprudence of the Court and is concerned with the compatibility of the Greek law with Community law on free movement.
