We make every effort to ensure that a person’s removal by deportation coincides, as far as possible, with his/her release from prison on completion of sentence. Where a detainee refuses to co-operate with the removal or deportation process, detention may be prolonged.

The Immigration Bill will have a significant impact on the ability of FNOs to delay removal by mounting legal challenges while in the UK. The current appeals system means that 17 different types of decision can be appealed. The Immigration Bill will simplify the appeals system and mean that appeals can only be brought where the Home Office has refused a protection (asylum or humanitarian protection) claim, a human rights claim or a claim based on EU free movement rights. It will also give us the power to certify that where deportation will not cause serious irreversible harm, the appeal will be heard after the offender has left the country.
