Question for Home Office

UIN HL7841, tabled on 15 May 2023

To ask His Majesty's Government whether any country has rejected a UK request for extradition, for reasons of the inadequacy of (1) the UK justice system, or (2) the UK prison conditions, within the past five years; and if so, which countries have done so, and on what grounds.

As a matter of long-standing Government policy, we do not comment on whether an extradition request has been made or received.

However, I can confirm that the UK makes every attempt to respond as fully as possible to requests for assurances in relation to matters such as those referenced by the Noble Lord when such requests are received in relation to extradition requests made to other countries.
