To ask Her Majesty's Government which states fail to provide travel documents for their nationals awaiting deportation from the United Kingdom; and what measures they are taking to overcome this.
Virtually all countries accept their obligation to accept back their nationals when their removal is enforced, provided nationality (and often, identity) can be satisfactorily established. This is often the key challenge to removing and/or deporting individuals from the UK. Effective co-operation with the country of origin is therefore essential to agree and implement documentation arrangements and methods of return.
Where a country declines to issue a document, in any circumstance, UKBA and FCO invest considerable effort to understand their concerns and help secure co-operation. As we continue to engage with such countries on migration issues, it would be inappropriate to name them.
