To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many cases of proposed deportation extradition or other transfer of foreign nationals from the UK have been stopped by the UK court or her Department wholly or partially on (a) any legal ground, (b) human rights grounds relying on Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), (c) human rights grounds relying on Article 8 of the ECHR and (d) human rights grounds relying on both Article 3 and Article 8 of the ECHR.
