In the given period, the Legal Services Commission advises that legal aid totalling £70,830.70 was paid in 10 cases which involved the extradition of UK citizens from England and Wales to the USA.

In each agency involved, the cases were dealt with as part of its overall and larger case load.
The figure does not include legal aid which may have been granted in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
