Deportation: Sri Lanka
Gareth Thomas (Harrow West, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether she plans to review the implications for her policy on deportations to Sri Lanka of the death of Easwarathasan Kietheeswaran; and if she will make a statement.
Damian Green (Minister of State (Immigration), Home Office; Ashford, Conservative)
We do not comment on individual cases.
The UK Border Agency's returns policy to Sri Lanka is kept constantly under review and decisions are taken in the light of prevailing circumstances. Returns are only enforced when it is safe to do so and when the agency and the courts are satisfied that the individual has no international protection needs.
