Question for Home Office

UIN HL1715, tabled on 30 July 2014

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Faulks on 29 July (WA 277), whether any working group or committee within Government is currently giving consideration to issues relating to extradition; and, if so, what matters are being considered.

Both the UK Government and Scottish Government have said that there can be no ‘pre-negotiations’ on independence in advance of the referendum. The question of potential future extradition issues for Scotland would be affected by Scottish independence, so cannot be answered now because it would depend on multiple negotiations that could only take place if people in Scotland vote to leave the UK in September’s referendum.
