I am deeply concerned that under existing plans for Brexit the government seem to be entirely abandoning the European Arrest Warrant. Can you provide the number of individuals arrested in London through the European Arrest Warrant since 2017 broken down by month and type of crime?

I too, am concerned about the loss of not only this vital policing tool but others such as SIS II and ECRIS. Unfortunately, the MPS do not hold accurate data on the regional use of the EAW. The National Crime Agency publish this information on their website and any enquiries regarding these statistics should be directed to the Home Office.
