To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what fields of data are stored in the Inmate Information System (IIS); for what reason information on deportation order recommendations were not stored in the IIS; and if he will ensure that such information is stored in the IIS in the future.

The Inmate Information System (IIS) records a large number of fields covering personal, offence and sentence details and disciplinary adjudications. It can identify a prisoner as a deportee but only when they are not also serving a custodial sentence. When IIS was introduced, the numbers of foreign national prisoners recommended for deportation were relatively small. IIS is to be replaced by the C-NOMIS system from 2007 and this will record recommendations for deportation.
