To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department

(1) what the average cost of transportation, including security and all other related costs, is for deporting a foreign national who is being deported following a conviction in the UK if the deportation is successful;

(2) what costs of transportation, including security and all other related costs, of foreign nationals who are being deported due to having committed a criminal offence are irrecoverable where the deportation is (a) rescheduled and (b) cancelled.

We do not differentiate between the cost of deporting ex-foreign national prisoners and other detainees so the information requested is not readily discernible.

The information requested could be obtained only by examination of individual records to establish whether the person had committed a criminal offence at disproportionate cost.
