To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people have been extradited to the UK for tax offences under a European Arrest Warrant in each of the last 10 years.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
16 June 2014
Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have been involved in 42 cases where people have been surrendered to the UK for tax offences since 2008/09 on a European Arrest Warrant.
2008/2009 - 6
2010/2011 - 5
2011/2012 - 5
2012/2013 - 7
2013/2014 - 3

These figures do not represent all cases involving tax offences, as other EAWs which may include tax offences were not dealt with by HMRC and are not recorded separately.
