HC Deb 10 July 2002 vol 388 c1062W
Keith Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many requests he has received for extradition since 7 June. [68013]

Mr. Bob Ainsworth

The United Kingdom has received three extradition requests since 7 June 2002. In addition, requests are awaited for six fugitives who have been provisionally arrested since that date.

The figures do not include requests received from Ireland which are subject to a simpler backing of warrants regime. Those figures are not kept centrally.
