On 8 September 2010, my right honourable friend the Home Secretary announced there was to be an independent review of the UK's extradition arrangements.

This review was chaired by Sir Scott Baker. The review panel published their report on 18 October 2011.

The review made a number of recommendations which the Home Secretary is currently considering. The Government will announce what action they will take in response to the review once the Home Secretary has completed her deliberations.
