Representations about the imprisonment of Michael Binnington and Luke Atkinson have been received from the hon. Member for Witham and from others.

Michael Binnington and Luke Atkinson were transferred from a prison in Cyprus to one in the United Kingdom in order serve their prison sentence here. Transfer took place in accordance with the provisions of the Council of Europe Convention on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons and the Repatriation of Prisoners Act 1984. I am satisfied that their detention here is both lawful and appropriate. No further review of the case is planned.
